Improvement of Properties of Carbon Fibre Based Composite Materials through Matrix Modification
Assistant Professor Jeffrey Wiggins from the University of Southern Mississippi tells us about work his team is doing on carbon fibre-based composite materials. In particular they are working on matrix chemistries to optimise matrix critical properties.
They are looking at using nanoparticles to enhance properties of the matrix and improve structural performance.
He believes that these materials will find use in sporting equipment, aerospace, consumer products and defence where they will replace metals.
This interview was recorded at the Carbon Fibre - Future Directions conference, held in Geelong Australia and organised by VCAMM and Deakin University.
