Video: Carbon nanotubes twist and coil to harvest energy from back and forth motions

By April Gocha / September 6, 2017

An international research team led by scientists at the University of Texas at Dallas and Hanyang University in South Korea has fashioned carbon nanotubes into “twistron” yarns that can generate electrical energy when pulled, stretched, tugged, or twisted.

Spinning yarn out of nano powder-infused nanotubes for superconducting applications

By / January 10, 2011

Credit: Science/AAAS/UTD NanoTech Institute Recently I wrote about Israeli-based TorTech, which says it will soon be manufacturing carbon nanotube fiber yarns that it claims to be stronger than Kevlar, yet still flexible and lightweight. While Tor-Tech plans to implement the technology for military use, spinning nano yarns has potential for many applications. MIT’s Technology Review…
