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…
