Individual carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been reported to have the highest thermal conductivities of any known material. However, significant variability exists both for the reported thermal conductivities of individual CNTs and the thermal conductivities measured for macroscopic CNT assemblies (e.g. CNT films, buckypapers, arrays, and fibers), which range from comparable to metals to aerogel-like. This chapter reviews the current status of the field, summarizing a wide selection of experimental results and drawing conclusions regarding present limitations of the thermal

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been at the frontier of nanotechnology research for the past two decades. The interest in CNTs is due to their unique physical and chemical properties, which surpass those of most other materials. To put CNTs into macroscale applications, the nanotubes can be spun to form continuous fiber materials. Thus far, the properties of the fibers are far below the properties of the individual nanotubes. If the electrical and mechanical properties of the fibers could be improved,

The application of carbon nanotube (CNT) materials to produce lightweight, flexible and durable RF antenna designs is explored through simulation, fabrication and measurement of a variety of CNT thread and sheet antenna designs. The conductivity and current distribution for a dipole antenna constructed from CNT thread/rope are simulated using Hallén's integral equation for a thin wire applied to the Method of Moments. An aperture-coupled patch antenna composed of CNT sheet material is fabricated, measured and compared with a

Medical change is coming. Robots and tiny machines built using nanoscale materials are going to fundamentally change engineering at the microscale and medicine will be the first area to benefit. In tiny machine design, copper and iron are replaced with carbon nanotube superfiber wire and magnetic nanocomposite materials. Because of the small size of tiny machines, high magnetic fields can be generated and high-force, high-speed devices can be built. Tiny machines are still in the early stages of being built

This chapter describes the development of noncarbon nanotubes and compares the features of carbon and noncarbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are the most widely available nanotube material and are typically used for reinforcement of polymeric and glass materials, electronic applications, etc. Noncarbon nanotubes such as boron nitride and silicon carbide have advantages for use in aggressive environments. Possible uses of noncarbon nanotubes include reinforcement of metals, polymers, and glasses; environmental and thermal barrier coatings; electronics; and radiation shielding.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are considered one-dimensional systems that possess fascinating electronic, chemical and mechanical properties. They exhibit metallic or semiconducting behavior depending on the nanotube diameter and chirality, and they are ultrarobust and lightweight. Moreover, their surface can be chemically activated thus being able to establish different types of bonds between the carbon nanotube surface and a large number of chemical species; for instance, they could be introduced into a polymeric matrix improving its mechanical or electronic properties. In addition,

Individual carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have exceptional mechanical and electrical properties. However, the transfer of these extraordinary qualities into CNT products, without compromising performance, remains a challenge. This chapter presents an overview of the manufacturing of CNT sheets and buckypaper and also describes research performed at the University of Cincinnati in this field. CNT arrays were grown using the chemical vapor deposition method. Sheets were drawn from the spinnable CNT arrays and characterized using scanning electron microscopy to show the highly

This chapter discusses fabrication of carbon nanotube yarn and coating of metals and nonmetals onto the yarn to increase electrical conductivity. An increase in weight due to the metal particle coating is the trade-off for achieving increased electrical conductivity. Electrical conductors made from the hybrid alloy yarn may have multiple applications including in electrical conductors and transmission lines. Carbon nanotube yarns also show potential as microelectrodes and robust and flexible chemiresistors for molecular detection. The decoration of metal nanoclusters on

Carbon nanotube (CNT) yarn, a macroscopic structure of CNTs with many potential applications, has attracted increased attention around the world and across many research areas and industrial fields, including materials science, electronics, medical biology and ecology. Spinning CNTs into yarn based on traditional textile spinning principles has demonstrated the potential in many important applications by producing weavable multifunctionalized yarns. Between 1991 and 2010, new manufacturing methods have enabled the production of pure CNT yarns and CNT-based composite yarns called superfiber suitable for

Ultralong multiwalled carbon nanotube arrays (forests) were grown by chloride-mediated chemical vapor deposition, in which iron chloride was used as a catalyst precursor. Highly spinnable millimeter-long arrays were grown with a very rapid growth rate of 100 μm/min. By stacking long-lasting carbon nanotube (CNT) webs, unidirectionally aligned CNT sheets were fabricated. The sheet was highly anisotropic in electrical and thermal properties and due to high alignment of the CNTs in the sheets. CNT yarns were fabricated using the millimeter-long CNTs
