Puritans, Goths, avant-garde artists, hell-raising poets and fashion icon Coco Chanel all saw something special in it. Now black, that most enigmatic of colours, has become even darker and more mysterious.
Surrey NanoSystems develop commercial applications for nanomaterials related to carbon, such as carbon nanotubes. This class of nanomaterial has tremendous potential to solve real world challenges in microelectronics, clean technology and aerospace applications.
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.
