Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs)


Research at Mizzou could help reduce cost to build particle accelerators

If Mizzou Engineers are successful, that price tag of particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider could drop drastically.

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the idea with an award funding the group’s research for three years.
