Processing and properties of aligned carbon nanotube/glass ceramic composite

Abstract:

Previous attempts to produce carbon nanotube (CNT) ceramic composites have resulted in poorly dispersed, unaligned and non-continuous CNTs in the composites with modest improvements in properties. The research presented in this thesis pertains to the production of dense aluminoborosilicate (ABS) glass matrix composites containing aligned and continuous multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) of millimetre lengths. This was achieved by infiltrating CVD grown MWCNT preforms using a precursor s...
