Nanotechnology Flight Test: Material Impact on the Future



Cleveland OH (SPX) May 18, 2017
Mastering the intricacies of controlling matter at the nanoscale level is part of a revolutionary quest to apply nanotechnology to benefit industrial processes. A key element of that technology is the use of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are small hollow tubes with diameters of 0.7 to 50 nanometers and lengths generally in the tens of microns. While ultra-small, carbon nanotubes offer big-time attributes. For instance, materials can be manufactured that exhibit superior strength but are still ... read more
