diverse ideas Dec 19, 2004
The authors give a detailed treatment of various aspects of nanocomposites. They describe numerous fabrication methods, like a thermal spray approach, or mechanical alloying. Plus, unsurprisingly, how to use carbon nanotubes as a basis for composites. Another large group of methods revolves around using polymers. Where carbon nanotubes can also be used.
Though the most interesting section to me was on using biological ideas as a template for nanocomposite construction. Intriguing, though still preliminary work.
The sheer diversity of approaches is a good sign of a promising new field. While the tone of the text is basically that of research, you may be able to design industrial productions from some of these ideas.
