Fine felted nanotubes: CAU research team develops new composite material made of carbon nanotubes

In this new process, the tiny, thread-like carbon nanotubes (CNTs) arrange themselves - almost like felting - to form a stable, tear-resistant layer. Image: Fabian Schütt

A difficult candidate

Following the principle of bamboo buildings

For their new method, the Kiel scientists Yogendra Mishra, Fabian Schütt and Helge Krüger (from left) used the principle of traditional bamboo construction in order to increase the stability. Image: Julia Siekmann/CAU
