UC Researchers Shatter World Records With Length of Latest Carbon Nanotube Arrays

April 27, 2007

News thumbnail Engineering researchers at the University of Cincinnati have developed a novel composite catalyst and optimal synthesis conditions for oriented growth of multiwall CNT arrays, and right now, they lead the world in synthesis of extremely long-aligned carbon nanotube arrays. Carbon nanotubes are of great interest because of their outstanding mechanical, electrical and optical properties. Intense research has been undertaken to synthesize long-aligned CNTs because of their potential applications in Full Story
