Weibull Analysis of Dry CNT Network Interphase Thickness in 2D Buckypaper Membrane

Energy icon, disabled. An orange lightning bolt.

The researcher will manufacture a dry carbon nanotube (CNT) network in a 2D buckypaper membrane. The researcher will use Peak Force Quantitative Nanomechanical Mapping (PFQNM) to measure the interphase thickness between the CNT network and the epoxy resin. Weibull model will be used for statistical analysis of the interphase thickness.
