Cement paste with well-dispersed multi-walled carbon nanotubes: Mechanism and performance

The research of functional cement composite materials has always been the focus in the field of concrete. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) as one of the conductive fillers can significantly improve the mechanical and electrical properties of concrete. However, the addition of MWCNTs seriously affects the fluidity of cement paste and the distribution of internal particles, […]

Electro-Exfoliation of Graphite to Graphene

A group of scientists from the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Mikołaj Kopernik in Toruń presented the results of their research of electro-exfoliation of graphite to graphene in an aqueous solution of inorganic salt. For the tests, graphite foil and graphite powder were used. Unlike other methods, e.g., chemical vapor deposition, epitaxial growth, […]

Carbon nanotube electrodes tuned by strain

onic device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling.” So IBM researchers brought their scanning probe thermometer, their air spacer for a 10 nanometer chip, their 7 nm chip, and not to be out-done by silicon, they brought their carbon nanotubes, too. These papers and presentations by IBMers and many partners will take part in this week’s conference in San Francisco.
