Carbon nanotube fibers enable lightweight power transmission, but high resistance will limit adoption

Building on previous research conducted with Teijin Aramid (see the January 27, 2013 LRMJ), researchers at Rice University recently published findings showing that carbon nanotube (CNT) fibers 20 µm wide are able to carry more current (ampacity) than a copper wire of equal mass. Copper's resistiv...
