CSI was funded by the Office of Naval Research

CSI was funded by the Office of Naval Research to develop high performance single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) - polymer composites with enhanced mechanical properties through tailored functionalization of SWNTs. The R&D conducted in this project will lead to the development of high-strength light-weight composites which will significantly advance the performance of composites utilized in naval, defense, aerospace and commercial industries. In this Phase I STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) project CSI partners with leading experts in the composite materials field – Prof. H. Thomas Hahn from UCLA, Dr. Erik Thostenson and Prof. Tsu-Wei Chou from the University of Delaware.
