22_24i/2012Nanocomposites: High-Strength Laminated Copper Matrix Nanocomposites Developed from a Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Film with Continuous Reticulate Architecture (Adv. Funct. Mater. 24/2012)

A new strategy for fabricating Cu/single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)/Cu laminated nanocomposites is reported by Weiya Zhou, Sishen Xie, and co-workers on page 5209. The Cu/SWCNT/Cu laminated nanocomposites exhibit excellent mechanical properties and realize an effective transfer of the outstanding mechanical properties of SWCNTs to the composites. This results from the continuous reticulate architecture of SWCNT films and the optimization of interfacial strength between SWCNTs and the Cu matrix.
