New Carbon Nanotube Composite Developed by Fujitsu Laboratories

Fujitsu Laboratories has made a breakthrough in carbon nanotube research.

The company has combined carbon nanotubes and graphene, both of which are nano-scale carbon structures, to self-form a new nano-scale carbon composite, at the relatively low temperature of 510 degrees Celsius.

In experiments using chemical vapor deposition, a technique to synthesize thin films and structures on a substrate by thermally decomposing a feedstock gas in a vacuum chamber, Fujitsu Labs discovered that several to dozens of layers of graphene were formed self-organizingly on the vertically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes in such a way that they are connected perpendicularly.
