The goal of this project is to develop processing capabilities for high-strength and ultra-conductive wires to improve power-to-weight ratios and energy efficiency of electrical military systems. The first objective of this Phase I project is to build up quantitative microstructure-property models to guide the development of electrical and thermal conductive carbon nanotubes (CNTs) modified copper and aluminum. The second objective is to develop individual fabrication steps able to obtain the desired microstructures of CNTs modified copper and aluminum. The third objective is to demonstrate the feasibilities of integrating the individual fabrication steps into a whole multi-step wire processing operations that can be scaled up for the overall fabrication processing sequences of carbon nanotube modified copper and aluminum wires with ultrahigh conductivities.
