Effect of Depth of Large-Sized Buried Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) Network and Interphase on the Contact Response in AFM Nanoscale Characterization

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

Understanding of the CNT network interphase will help in facilitating the manufacturing of stronger and tougher composites that are employed in aerospace, space, and defense sectors. Finite Element simulations are used to characterize the nanoscale effect of depth of large-sized CNT network and interphase on contact response in AFM to develop a multiscale understanding of damage tolerant nanocomposite materials.
