Coating of tools with nanocrystallin diamond reduces surface roughness and wear. Longer tool lifetime and reduced energy consumption for processing of hard and brittle work pieces are the consequence ...
Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes
The stongest and toughest material known so far with very low specific gravity
For their discovery H.W. Kroto, R.E. Smalley, R.F. Curl were awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1996.
Template Grown Nanostructures
The graphene walls and the interior of the tubes provide a unique nanospace for growing new materials.
