Scientists at the University of Cambridge, UK, have devised a new way to make super-strength carbon nanotube fibres. Although individual carbon nanotubes have impressive properties at the nano-scale, it has been challenging to transform the tubes into useful materials.
The new fibres can be woven into body armour or twisted into cables that rival the properties of those used today. Alan Windle, who led the project, told Chemistry World: 'We have demonstrated that perfect carbon nanotube fibres have exceptional strength and stiffness, making them an outstandingly promising material.'
