Abstract
Through this effort, NanoTechLabs Inc. will improve the efficiency and lower the mass of the cryogenic heat exchanger used in American Superconductor's High Temperature Superconducting Degaussing system. NanoTechLabs will achieve these goals by producing a Carbon Nanotube metal matrix composite. Carbon Nanotubes have a room temperature thermal conductivity of ~3000 W/m K and a density of ~1.3 grams per cubic centimeter. NanoTechLabs will work with American Superconductor to achieve the highest improvements in efficiency and mass reduction. American Superconductor will ensure that our test pieces produced will get the most relevant testing available.
