The objective of this proposal is controlled nanotube growth on a lightweight veil substrate such that the vertically aligned nanotubes may be easily incorporated into a polymer or composite structure.
Specific objectives are:
The proposed materials development will lead to a novel material system that can be licensed and incorporated into structures requiring increased damage tolerance as well as thermal and/or electrical conductivity. The proposed research, if successful, can result in significant interest from the automotive sector and the aircraft manufacturers.More »
