Carbon nanotube-copper composite for submarine power cables

Lloyds _200 Width

IOM leads activities providing a comprehensive approach to safety and regulatory issues in a project sponsored by Lloyd's Register Foundation to explore the potential of a carbon nanotube copper composite as a current carrying wire for potential use as a submarine electrical cable.  The project is coordinated by Professor Sir Mark Welland from the University of Cambridge, and involves research groups from the National University of Singapore and Texas A&M University.
