PRONT – Production of carbon nanotubes
CNTs are tubular structures of single or multiple levels of graphite and possess exceptional electronic and thermal conductivity as well as high mechanical tensile strength. Single walled CNTs can be both metallic and semiconducting – the electronic properties of each tube depend strongly on its structure and diameter. The “ProNT” team will be involved in the production and distribution of identical custom-made semiconducting CNTs for laboratories and industrial needs. With a new scalable technology, the production of such “ready-to-use” nanotubes is possible for the first time in large quantities.
