MATERIAL ADVANCES

Novel materials, from smart metals to self-healing plastics, are the subject of a significant fraction of the research presented at the APS March Meeting every year. Among the thousands of material advances on tap is one that may lead to the toughest fabrics ever made. The key to the new material is fiber made of bundles of carbon nanotubes. Tobin Filleter (A28.00005) and colleagues at Northwestern University have developed methods to make nanotube threads and twine tougher still by exposing them to electron beams that cause the fibers to form microscopic mechanical bonds known as crosslinks. The crosslinked fibers are as much as ten times stiffer and stronger than non-irradiated fibers. Vasav Sahni (A44.00009) and colleagues at the University of Akron have taken
