  • Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are the strongest materials ever discovered by mankind. With measured tensile strengths as high as 150 GPa and a high modulus of 1 TPa, CNTs are very promising for many high-strength, lightweight applications. Several approaches have been reported to process micrometer-long CNTs into fibers, including dispersing CNTs into polymer or acid solutions and then spinning them into composite or pure CNT fibers. Unfortunately, difficulties in CNT dispersion and alignment have… CONTINUE READING
