Beefy Carbon Nanotube Fibers
Individual carbon nanotubes are prized for their strength and stiffness, and scientists have been thinking that those properties might translate into high-performance fibers made from the material. In 2004, Alan H. Windle and coworkers at the University of Cambridge reported the fabrication of such fibers using a one-step process that employs a rotating rod to mechanically draw the fibers from a nanotube aerogel. Windle's group has now characterized those fibers and found that their . . .
