Abstract: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were successfully grown on the surface of carbon fibre reinforcements in carbon fibre architecture through in-situ catalytic chemical vapour deposition (CCVD). Success was also implemented on powders of oxides and non-oxides, including Y-TZP powder, ball milled alumina powder, alumina grits, silicon carbide powder. Preliminary results have been achieved to demonstrate the feasibility of making ceramic composites consisting of CNTs reinforcements. [Continues.]
