CARBON CONDUCTORS FOR LIGHTWEIGHT MOTORS AND GENERATORS

Rice University – Houston, TX

A new carbon nanotube (CNT) conductor technology will be developed to increase motor efficiency. CNT growth and fiber spinning will be optimized increasing the CNT fiber conductivity by using more conductive CNT material as well as by doping, which is expected to increase the fiber conductivity by about 30-35%.
