NANOTUBE FABRIC TOUGHER THAN KEVLAR

Yarns and twines made of carbon nanotubes could lead to the toughest textiles ever made, provided methods to spin them into substantial lengths are successful. Tobin Filleter and colleagues at Northwestern University have developed methods to make nanotube twine tougher still by exposing it 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. In the same session, Ray Baughman of the University of Texas at Dallas will consider larger-scale issues of forming carbon nanotube yarns into long enough segments to be woven into fabrics for use in superconductors, Li-ion battery materials, and fuel cells, among other applications.

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY CENTENNIAL

The year 2011 marks a century since the discovery of superconductivity. Session B3 will be devoted to the history of the discovery, including notable superconductivity milestones. Session Q3 looks at research opportunities in superconductivity. Dozens of sessions will cover reports of the latest research findings. The Industrial Physics Forum, a meeting-within-the-meeting sponsored jointly by the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics, will look at the latest industrial applications of superconductivity (sessions 1A, 1B, A5). Topics in these sessions include the advent of a comprehensive theory of low-temperature superconductivity, the latest superconductivity applications in the areas of medical imaging, the electric grid, e
