Project Proposal

Carbon Nanotubes – New Material

for XXICentury.

Research of selected applications.


introduction to nanotechnology common facts
Introduction to nanotechnology common facts
  • Discovered in 1991 by Iijima
  • Unique material properties
  • Nearly one-dimensional structures
  • Single- and multi-walled
polymer nanocomposites



  • To make a reliable composite, covalent bonds must be present between the SWNTs and the polymer matrix.
  • . This network will simultaneously provide stiffness and strength to the polymer, serve to dissipate heat, and provide an embedded electrical circuit for damage monitoring.



How to make











project aim
Project aim
  • Carbon nanotubes due to their sub atomic size have unusual and unique properties.
  • Their composite layers are transparent so they can be the best field emitters due to their high electrical conductivity.
  • CNT-based transparent conductive films can be used in the touch screens for portable computers, cell phones, personal digital LCD displays, plastic solar cells, organic LED lighting, and many others.
  • Their high tensile strength can be used for bullet-resistant combat jackets.

Antiballistic materials

Nanotube tries to recover elastically, and transfer back the energy to the bullet.Better at absorbing energy and reducing the impact of a bullet.

Babolat VS Drive is a CNT-reinforced tennis racket.


Nissan's X-Trailsport-utility vehicle has CNT-reinforced bumpers.


NASA's Morphing Glider will have flexible CNT wings that move like a hawk's. The wings will curl, twist, extend and twitch.

project aim1
Project aim
  • The potential contribution of nanotechnology in the medical sector is extremely broad and includes new diagnostic tools, imaging agents and methods, drug delivery systems and pharmaceuticals, therapies, implants and tissue engineering constructs.
  • From microelectronics and bio-industries we have miniaturized devices for diagnostics in vitro such as biosensors, micro arrays and LOCs, – “Lab On a Chip”.

Nanotubes can be used in medicine.

project aim2
Project aim
  • Their semi conducting properties can be used to build transistors with extremely high performance.
  • Nanotubes give also a solution to thermal management problems for the semiconductor industry.
  • Due to very high thermal conductivity nanotubes are used as heat sinks.
  • The carbon nanotubes covered electrodes can increase the power stored in capacitors and rechargeable batteries in the ratio of some orders etc.

project description
Project description
  • Before study the applications of nanotechnology the students will be introduced to the nanotechnology with several lecture presentations and they also will be able to visit nonomaterial’s laboratory to attend the nanofabrication and diagnostic processes.
  • The final result of the project will be a Concept Design or Feasibility Study of one of Nano-Products (or Systems) potentially being implemented and resulted in product manufacturing in the scope of 5 -10 years.
  • The project is an interdisciplinary problem based on diverse skills.
