NASA Develops Novel Carbon Nanotube Growth Through Science Exchange (YC S11)

by Y Combinator7/17/2013

A collaboration formed using the online scientific services marketplace, Science Exchange, has lead to new developments in the production of carbon nanotube forests – the blackest materials ever measured. The research resulted from a partnership between NASA and the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN), a part of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF).

“NASA and the ANFF’s research is monumental, and we are thrilled to have been part of such an important development in nanotechnology,” said Dr. Elizabeth Iorns, co-founder and CEO of Science Exchange. “Scientists can now access the vast expertise available globally to produce powerful partnerships that lead to innovative research.”
