Breakout Session:  Electrical Materials

The unique physical properties of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are well known and have been discussed extensively in academic and popular scientific writing.  As individual CNTs are assembled into macroscopic formats, significant degradation of the electrical and mechanical properties occur.  Is it possible to maintain properties as we increase scale eight orders of magnitude?  Is it better to modify materials in-situ and via post processing? 

In this breakout session we will discuss how to improve the electrical conductivity of CNT materials – especially those used in formats such conductive elements for cables and shielding or additives/coatings for composites.
