Applied NanoStructured Solutions, LLC (ANS) has developed a technology to continuously grow and infuse Carbon Nanostructures (CNS) directly on fiber substrates. ANS has designed and constructed a modular, scalable manufacturing line and demonstrated infusion onto [...]
The EMI shielding capability of a material depends primarily on its electrical conductivity, its magnetic permeability, the frequency of an electromagnetic wave of interest, the total surface area of the material and its thickness related [...]
The multi-walled carbon nanotube (CNT)-embedded carbon nanofibers with hollow core/highly mesoporous shell stucture (CNT/Meso-HACNF) are prepared by concentric electrospinning using poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) as a pyrolytic core precursor with either CNT/polyacrylonitrile (PAN) or fumed silica [...]
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with unique thermal/electrical/mechanical properties and large surface area are an attractive candidate for the integration into thermal structures and for a flexible thermal interface material in a thermal device. In this study, [...]
We have developed a novel catalytic method for synthesizing a wide variety of carbon nanomaterials in the organic liquids. There is no need for a vacuum reactor. The method realized a simple, speedy, and a [...]
We have developed a new sensing material that can selectively detect explosive molecules such as 2,4-dinitrotoluene and 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene; and have successfully demonstrated functional chemical sensors using this new material. The newly developed sensing material is [...]
CNT foam is a material with a porous structure constructed with nano-porous carbon, carbon nanotubes (CNTs). It is expected that CNT foam derives many of its functions from both its nanostructure and its microstructure and, [...]
We propose new electromagnetic shielding(EMS) sheets using carbon-nanotube(CNT)-composite papers. The paper has good electrical conductivity in spite of a paper, the weight is light, and there is no deterioration problem because of both the CNT [...]
This work proposed a novel approach, named CNT-blasting, aiming to fabricate cost effective CNT-field-emission anodes with high emission performances. This approach implants CNTs directly onto a screen printed silver paste by traditional sand blasting method, [...]
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to fabricate CNT/ PEDOT:PSS composite with transfer printing, in which the highly oriented CNT could be obtained. The preparation of CNT/ PEDOT:PSS composite started with the synthesis [...]
Silver carbon nanotubes AgCNT inhibited the growth of P. aeruginosa at the lowest concentration of 60 µg/ml for at least 12 hr. Further studies of structural and morphological changes would further elucidate the mechanism of [...]
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have been the reason of studies since they were discovered in 1991 and now the new innovator material is Graphene. Geim and Novoselov achieved a single sheet of Graphene. The importance of [...]
Cartilage and bone defects, which are caused by a variety of reasons such as traumatic injuries, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or bone cancers, represent common and severe clinical problems. Developments in nanotechnology and tissue engineering have provided [...]

The aim of this work was to design an advanced microelectrode material for neurotechnology. In order to improve signal-to-noise ratio, stimulation and sensing properties as well as cell viability, microelectrodes were modified with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) [...]
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have a diameter on the nanometer scale and a length on the micrometer or even centimeter scale. The high-aspect-ratio (length to diameter ratio) of CNTs offers a unique competitive advantage for using [...]
An explosive impact surface nanorisation technique (EISNT) was developed to prepare nanostructured surface layers on medium carbon steel (MCS) and pure Copper (PC) plates. The plastic deformation involved the entire plate depth of 4-6 mm, [...]
This research presents a new approach to fabricate polymer/carbon nanotubes (CNT) nanocomposites. Multiwall carbon nanotubes with 6-9 nm diameter and 1.5 um length is used. Polydimethysolixane (PDMS), Acetone, and Polyethylene oxide (PEO) are used as [...]
We have recently shown that annealing of agglomerated carbon nanotubes on thermoplast polymers form surface composite films (70 micrometers) (1). This has been explained by preferential carbon nanotubes absorption of infrared radiation leading to local [...]
We have developed a series of strategies to unravel the mechanism of adsorption of surfactants and polymeric dispersants onto SWNT and MWNT. Using these guidelines, we have prepared a novel series of polymeric surfactants that [...]
