what is it
What is it?
  • Buckypaper is made from carbon nanotubes 50,000 times thinner than a human hair.
  • Nobel laureate Dr. Richard Smalley’s group first made buckypaper by filtering a nanotube suspension to prepare samples for various tests.
  • It is ten times lighter and possibly 500 times stronger than steel.
how it s made
How It’s Made
  • The most common way is to use sodium lauryl sulfate to improve solubility, and filter a suspension under pressure to make the paper.
  • A Frit compression method can also be used without additional substances by compressing a suspension in a syringe.
  • The tubes can be exposed to strong magnetic fields to align them and increase the overall strength.
applications
