Carbon Nanotube Film Holds Promise for Creating Composites for Use in Aircraft Manufacture

Carbon Nanotube Film Holds Promise for Creating Composites for Use in Aircraft Manufacture

MIT aerospace engineers have successfully designed a carbon nanotube(CNT) film that is capable of heating and solidifying a composite without requiring large ovens. The heated film causes solidification of the polymer, when electric power is supplied and it is wrapped over a multilayer polymer composite. [More]
