Abstract

original image

Kilometers of continuous multifunctional carbon nanotube (CNT) yarns have been spun directly from chemical vapor deposition synthesis. The CNT yarn consists of multiple layers of high-purity double-walled CNTs stacked in seamless tubules or folded films along the yarn axis (see image). This multilayerd CNT yarn is promising for applications as engineering fibers, composites, and intelligent fabrics.
