Abstract

Graphene is a flat sheet of carbon whereas carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are tube so graphene. Both exceed the industry standard for electrical, thermal and mechanical properties, producing an alternative to the materials used today and allowing for Composites that are stronger than the steel at a fraction of the weight. CNTs have great potential in the aerospace industry; by developing high quality sensors, reinforcing Composites and enhancing materials with self-healing advantages. The Nanotechnology Research Group is initiating an effort to grow CNTs and graphene using the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method. The CVD method disgusts I'd injecting several gasses into a furnace (600 - 1200°C) allowing the catalyst material to decompose the hydrocarbon and to grow CNTs or graphene. The objective did or first year is ti control the growth of CNTs and to achieve stable growth and large domain size graphene.
