MIT Takes Composites to the Nanoscale

Abstract:
Composite materials, such as fiberglass and carbon fiber, are among things that are part of the most modern construct and advanced systems, ranging from intelligent clothes to stealth airplanes, and their benefits to the world are obvious upon taking a closer look at their properties. However, not content with just benefiting from them in a normal manner, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been, for quite some time now, looking for ways of making them ever smaller, until they have finally managed to reach the nanoscale.
