NASA to use Vietnam-made carbon nanotubes

Abstract:
he NASA Ames Research Center has inked a deal to use carbon nanotubes produced by the R & D Center under the Ho Chi Minh City Hi-Tech Park for aerospace application.

Under the agreement, the affiliate of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will use Vietnam-made carbon nanotubes to produce atomic force microscope (AFM) tips.

This is the first application of the nanotube technology in the production of scientific devices, bringing very high profit.

The materials used to make AFM tips are worth only US$10 but the price of a finished AFM tip is currently quoted at $600.

The NASA Ames Research Center will also join hands with its Vietnamese partner to apply the nano composite technology in manufacturing the spacecraft hulls.
