Abstract
Polyacrylonitrile (PAN)/carbon nanotube (CNT) composite fibers will be spun to obtain precursor fiber with about 2 micrometer diameter. By optimizing stabilization and carbonization conditions, high tensile strength carbon fiber will be obtained with a diameter of about 1 micrometer. CNT incoporation can lead to the ordered graphitic structure in the vicinity of CNT, which will improve the mechanical properties of the resulting carbon fiber. These nano-tailored carbon fibers will have superior tensile and compressive properties as well as better electrical conductivity as compared to the conventional carbon fiber.
