Multifunctional composites have good mechanical properties and at least one other property of interest (e.g. electrical, thermal…) in a given application.
Nanoscale Materials mutli-wall CNTs)
How Small is Nano Small?
How many carbon nanotubes does it take to stretch across the width of a human hair?
A human hair is about 100 micrometers.
A carbon nanotube is about 5 nanometers
That’s 20,000 carbon nanotubes per human hair.
