Nano-Scale Reinforcements Going Big in Thin Films

Posted by on Dec 21, 2015 in Latest News

Carbon nanomaterials in thin films enable cost and weight savings Thin film uniformity and quality have a direct impact on performance and mission safety for numerous air vehicle platforms. Lack of uniformity in film materials could compromise a mission and, at the very least, drive life cycle costs to unsustainable levels. The ASI project eliminates these concerns through the establishment of improved performance film materials with lower weight and significantly reduced scrap rate.   THE CHALLENGE Military air vehicle producers use thin, resistive films to enable cutting-edge...
