This article describes the intersection of two intriguing materials—aerogels and nanotubes. There are a couple different ways nanotubes and aerogels have come together: Otherwise skip down below to read about aerogels made with carbon nanotubes and nanotube catalysts made out of aerogels. Nanotubes are nanosized structures which nanotechnologists can use to make electronics, sensors, drug delivery vehicles, and materials.
Sep 03, Carbon nanotubes win three minute thesis at University of Sydney Nanowerk News Civil engineering postgraduate student studying carbon nanotubes, Kate McDonell YouTube profilewill represent the University of Sydney in the Trans-Tasman Three-minute Thesis 3MT competition later this year after winning the University's finals of the competition.
Kate McDonell 3MT competitors have just seconds to present their thesis topic to a panel of non-experts. A simple explanation of her thesis project titled Structural modification of carbon nanostructures for improvement of mechanical properties won Kate the challenge.
As part of her Phd research she is investigating the complex bond between nanotubes and the effects of electron irradiation.
Kate who is completing her PhD in School of Civil Engineering explained carbon nanostructures are significant due to their extraordinary mechanical, electronic and structural properties. Because of their composition they can be used as additives to various structural materials such as cable for space elevators, light sabre battery or body armour.
This can cause low shear strength," states Kate. One of the ways they mend themselves is to create bonds.
But just like if we have a break in our skin, when the nanotubes mend themselves it doesn't mend perfectly. It leaves a scar. I do this by changing the speed of the electrons and the temperature of the nanotubes.Nov 16, · Nov. 16, — In a landmark decision, representatives from 60 countries voted to redefine the International System of Units (SI), changing the world's definition of .
