The Effects of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Network Interphase and Properties in Buckypaper Membrane on Fracture Toughness Using Atomic Force Microscopy

Security icon, disabled. A blue padlock, locked.

Understanding the CNT interphase is crucial in discovering potential uses for the multifunctional nanomaterial. Nanocomposites such as CNT are relatively new multifunctional materials that can be utilized in many promising fields, ranging from spaceships to supercapacitors. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is used to characterize the effect of CNT network interphase in Buckypaper membrane on fracture toughness.
