Zheng Chen, Yonhua Tzeng: Structures with high number density of carbon nanotubes and 3-dimensional distribution. Auburn University, Eugene I Snyder, December 17, 2002: US06495258 (180 worldwide citation)

A composite is described having a three dimensional distribution of carbon nanotubes. The critical aspect of such composites is a nonwoven network of randomly oriented fibers connected at their junctions to afford macropores in the spaces between the fibers. A variety of fibers may be employed, incl ...
