Abstract
Since their discovery carbon nanotubes (CNT) are considered as one of the major material innovations of the last decades. Their enormous versatility enable CNT to be used for a vast amount of applications, such as lightweight structures, flexible electronics' and conductive composites. Especially in aircraft and automotive industry there is a strong need to use lightweight materials: Eventually it means less weight - less fuel - less carbon dioxide emission and green planet. Nano Carbon incorporated into metal, ceramic and epoxy structures might be also used for this purpose and outperform existing materials by higher mechanical strength, tensile strength and thermal conductivity. The presentation will show different matrix materials and the effects from nanoscale fillers from simulation and after production to the final composite. Fraunhofer IPA's department 670 Process Engineering of Functional Materials is working since ten years in the field of Nano Carbon Based processes and applications. Today Nano materials and Nano objects have taken an important role within the global research activities. This talk will give an overview about the basic principles, commercial and potential applications and point out the strategic importance of this new material.
