Description:

This report is a summary of the discussions that occurred during the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) technical interchange meeting on “Realizing the Promise of Carbon Nanotubes: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Pathway to Commercialization,” held at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters on September 15, 2014. The goals of the meeting were to identify, discuss, and report on technical barriers to the production of carbon nanotube (CNT)-based bulk and composite materials with electrical and mechanical properties nearer the ideal, and to explore ways to overcome these barriers.

Nanotechnology Fact

The term "nanomaterial" refers to nanoscale materials, or materials that contain nanoscale structures internally or on their surfaces. These can include engineered (or man-made) nanometer-scale objects such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, and nanofilms, as well as naturally occurring nanoparticles such as volcanic ash, sea spray, and smoke.
