Scientists researching the ‘darkest material known to man’ are hoping a new manufacturing process will enable them to create more accurate space instruments.
Researchers at the University of Surrey claim to have discovered a way to grow high quality carbon nanotubes over large areas of substrate temperatures below 350ºC
According to findings published this month in Carbon Journal, this breakthrough means that lowering the substrate temperature below 400ºC would make the technology compatible with cmos and suitable for large area substrates.
