CNT-Metal Nano Composite Powders

Application Testing of CNT-Metal Composite

Field Emission test & BLU Prototype made of CNT-Co

Figure 1. Emission pictures of CNT-Co composite. The CNT-Co composite was synthesized with Thin Multi wall CNT and Cobalt metal shown electron emission characteristics from CNT tip. The test conditions were 500uA/cm2 of current density and 4.3V/ס of electrical field.

Figure 3. Prototype of BLU(Back Light Unit). Electrical fields are 8.75V/um and 18.75V/um, respectively.


Bearing Ball sintered of CNT-Cu Composite

Figure 4. Bearing Ball picture made of CNT-Cu Composite and mechanical properties plot of various CNT contents in CNT-Cu composite. Bearing Ball made of CNT-Cu has shown the result of 3 times greater strength in yield strength and 2 times greater modulus in elastic modulus than properties of Copper itself.

DTA Result of CNT-Ag Composite

Figure 5. DTA(Differential Thermal Analysis) result of CNT-Ag composite. The silver nano particle boned at CNT shows melting point at 150E due to 20nm size of silver nano particle. CNT-Ag composite can be applied to conductive inks and emitter tips.


Polymer Composite made of CNT-Al and Epoxy Resin
Following image is dog-bone shape specimens of epoxy resin and CNT-Al composite for measurement of mechanical properties as method of ASTM D638. The Table 1 Shows that epoxy composite resin made with CNT-Al results in 1.7 times greater strength in tensile strength and 3 times greater modulus in Young's modulus than properties of epoxy resin itself.

Test Sample Tensile Strength Young's Modulus
Epoxy Resin 84 MPa 1.08 GPa
CNT-Al/Epoxy Resin 146 MPa 3.21 GPa


PET film printed with CNT-Ag
