New Carbon Composite of Nanotubes and Graphene

Fujitsu Laboratories exhibited a new carbon composite of nanotubes and graphene at the nano tech 2009 show. Examples of typical nanotechnology materials include two dimensional graphene in which carbon atoms are arranged in a planar state and one-dimensional carbon nanotubes in which graphene is wrapped into a cylindrical wire shape.

Applications that are being considered for this new material are applications that can utilize the characteristics of both nanotubes and graphene, particularly the conduction characteristics. Fujitsu intends to develop synthesis technology tailored to specific applications and also plans to focus on technology that will enable the structure to be freely controlled.
