Non conventional matrix / Carbon nanotubes reinforced composite for space application

Project: Research

Description

The potential of CNT composites for space applications shows that Young modulus improvement will be brought by CNT fiber in the 3-5 years and that, the property to target for CNT composites in two years is thermal conductivity. In this framework, buckypaper is the more reliable structure to be infiltrated up to now and already reaches good conductivities.
