Understanding the reinforcing ability of carbon nanotubes in ceramics
Carbon Nanotubes : 04 February, 2015
Researchers at the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan are exploring what is preventing the reinforcing ability of carbon nanotubes from being used in a ceramic matrix.
Super black - world’s darkest material - launched at Farnborough International
Carbon Nanotubes : 10 August, 2014
Sensitive electro-optical imaging and target-acquisition systems will achieve new levels of range and sensitivity performance thanks to a UK company’s breakthrough in developing a ′super black’ material to be launched at the Farnborough International Air Show.
Carbon nanotubes improve energy capacity of lithium-ion batteries
Carbon Nanotubes : 12 August, 2013
Batteries might gain a boost in power capacity as a result of a new finding from researchers at MIT. They found that using carbon nanotubes for one of the battery’s electrodes produced a significant increase - up to tenfold - in the amount of power it could deliver from a given weight of material, compared to a conventional lithium-ion battery. Such electrodes might find applications in small portable devices, and with further research might also lead to improved batteries for larger, more power-hungry applications.
Three more research grades of carbon nanotubes now available
Carbon Nanotubes : 06 May, 2013
SouthWest NanoTechnologies is introducing three new research grade carbon nanotube products. These new grades represent the latest advancements in SWeNT's continued drive towards higher performance, lower cost carbon nanotubes.
Renewable energy: Boron nitride nanotubes to channel osmotic power
Carbon Nanotubes : 03 March, 2013
The salinity difference between fresh water and salt water could be a source of renewable energy. However, power yields from existing techniques are not high enough to make them viable. A solution to this problem may now have been found.
Carbon nanotube inks featured at 2013 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference (FlexTech)
Carbon Nanotubes : 01 February, 2013
SouthWest NanoTechnologies, specialist in single-aall and multi-wall carbon nanotubes will display its family of conductive and semi-conducting CNT inks for flexible printed electronics at the FlexTech Alliance 2013 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference and Exhibition (Phoenix, AZ)
Nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes as effective in fuel cell catalysis as platinum, ruthenium and other noble metals
Carbon Nanotubes : 05 November, 2012
Fuel cells based on hydrogen and oxygen can convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy in an environmentally friendly way, as the by-product is simply water. As a replacement for scarece and expensive noble metals, organic materials, are now under the spotlight. Physicists at Umeå University in Sweden have deliberately introduced defects into carbon nanotubes to create the necessary properties.
Specialty multi-wall nanotubes presented at the SAMPE Tech 2012 Conference
Carbon Nanotubes : 22 October, 2012
SouthWest NanoTechnologies is presenting its new SMW line of speciality multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) at the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) Tech 2012 conference in Charleston, South Carolina
Raymor Industries and NanoIntegris combine into single walled carbon nanotube company
Carbon Nanotubes : 16 September, 2012
Raymor Industries and NanoIntegris Technologies have completed a business combination to integrate a leading single walled carbon nanotube growth company (Raymor) with one in carbon nanotube purification and separation (NanoIntegris).
World’s lightest material made of hollow carbon structures
Carbon Nanotubes : 14 August, 2012
A team from the Technical University of Hamburg and Germany’s University of Kiel has developed a new material composed of 0.01% carbon structures by volume. The remaining structure is air. The material, dubbed aerographite, has a density of less than 0.2mg/cm3. The next lightest material, metallic microlattice, has a density of 0.9mg/cm3.
