Developing Carbon Nanocomposite Smart Materials
To address the need for new smart materials, this paper explores the use of carbon nanotubes to develop a nanocomposite smart material having electrochemical impedance properties for sensing and actuation. Fabrication and characterization of the carbon nanocomposite material are discussed in the paper. The issues related to hurdles in the practical manufacturing of commodity level macro size nanocomposite smart materials with prescribed electrical and electrochemical properties are also discussed.
