ZnO Nanowire Interleave for Enhanced Interlaminar Strength

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$750,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Michael Garcia, Research Scientist – (480) 205-1202
Abstract:
The objective of this SBIR research project is to develop a treatment for interlaminar reinforcement that maintains the composite"s in-plane properties. Because the interlaminar region is a critical component of the composite and no current technology adequately addresses its weaknesses, this… More
