Realizing the Promise of Carbon Nanotubes: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Pathway to Commercialization

September 15, 2014

 

Where: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters, 300 E Street Southwest, Washington, DC 20546

About the Technical Interchange Meeting: The objectives of this meeting were to identify, discuss, and report the technical barriers preventing the production of carbon nanotube-based materials with optimal electrical and mechanical properties, and to explore ways to overcome these barriers.  Obstacles preventing the full exploitation of the multifunctional nature of carbon nanotube materials were also be discussed. This one-day meeting assembled some of the Nation’s leading experts in carbon nanotube research and development, as well as executives and experts from the Federal government, academia, and private sector. This technical interchange meeting is sponsored by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) and co-sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
