Southwest Nanotechnologies Featuring New Carbon Nanotube Applications At 2010 Materials Research Society Fall Meeting

Norman, OK | Posted on October 21st, 2010

SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT), the world leader in high quality, Single-Wall and Specialty Multi-Wall (SMW™) carbon nanotubes (CNT), will feature new CNT inks and CNT materials targeted at energy storage and printed electronics applications at the 2010 Material Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting, November 29 - December 3 at the Hynes Convention Center (level 2). (Booth #705)

SWeNT's CEO Dave Arthur will be on-hand at the event, exhibiting their CNT Inks, based on V2V™ Ink technology developed by alliance partner, Chasm Technologies, Inc. These inks can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.

The breakthrough process eliminates the need for subtractive patterning and post-production to remove ink dispersants and surfactants that degrade optoelectronic performance. Combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT® process), customers are able to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics.

SWeNT will feature printed samples of its innovative new ink products as well as new applications for its specialty multi-wall (SMW™) CNT.

At the event, SWeNT will also highlight their CNT materials targeted for use in alternative energy applications, specifically Plug-in Electric Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV). The Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries used in current PHEVs have a limited life span due to battery capacity degrading over time and repeated charging cycles. Research has found that enhancing the cathode material of Li-ion batteries with carbon nanotubes not only increases its power tenfold, but allows the battery to retain this capacity even after thousands of charging cycles.

SWeNT has the ability to produce a customized nanocomposite paste that contains their SMW™ CNTs and other cathode materials that is easier and safer to use than traditional multi-wall CNT powders. Additionally, SWeNT is one of the few manufacturers with the capability to produce their CNTs on a large enough commercial scale for these applications.
