Next Generation of Nanocomposite Materials Introduced
Nanotechnologists in Manoa’s College of Engineering have
developed a multifunctional nanocomposite material using carbon
nanotube forest-grown ceramic fiber cloths. Their research article
appeared in the May 7 online edition of Nature Materials.
The UH researchers on this project are Professor Mehrdad
Ghasemi-Nejhad, Assistant Professor Anyuan
Cao, Assistant Researcher Kougen Ma and
doctoral student Vinod Veedu.
The research team demonstrated one of the best ways to develop
carbon nanotube-based composite materials. In doing so, they addressed
various issues and concerns in both traditional composite materials
and carbon nanotube reinforced nanocomposites. Read
