Statistical Analysis of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Network Properties in Low Weight Percentage Nanocomposite Materials

Data icon, disabled. Four grey bars arranged like a vertical bar chart.
The network properties of multiwalled carbon nanotubes in low weight percentage nanocomposites have never been investigated before. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) based Peak Force Quantitative Nanomechanical Mapping (PFQNM) was employed to study the network properties of multiwalled carbon nanotubes in low weight percentage (0.1 wt% to 1 wt%) nanocomposite materials. The data collected will be analyzed using the Weibull analysis model. Studying the variance in network properties of multiwalled carbon nanotubes in low weight percentage nanocomposite materials would impact the nanoscale characterization of particle composites and help in the safe manufacturing of products.
