Buckypaper - Revolutionizing the Way Everything from Airplanes to TVs are Made
Developed at Florida State University, buckypaper is composed of carbon nanotubes
(CNT) and it could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TVs are
made. CNTs have amazing mechanical, electrical, photonic and thermal properties.
In buckypapers the nanotubes can either be randomly oriented or aligned in a
high-magnetic field, based upon the specific properties desired in the composites.
The High Performance Materials Institute (HPMI) and FSU has produced the world's
largest magnetically aligned buckypaper.
