In this talk, I’ll present the production of carbon nanotube (CNT) films and composite prepregs using a novel approach, mico-combing. The CNT films and composites have high strength, excellent electrical conductivity and high thermal conductivity. These superior properties are primarily derived from the long length, high volume fraction, good alignment and reduced waviness of the CNTs that are produced. The combination of high strength and excellent electrical and thermal conductivities makes CNT composites a promising for new electronic technologies and high-strength lightweight aerospace applications. The nanotechnology here is conducive to large-scale production of carbon nanotube films and composites at low cost.
