Distinguished University and Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi contributed the article, "High-Temperature Rubber Made from Carbon Nanotubes" on invitation to the "Perspectives" section of Science.
The write-up describes the viscoelastic behavior of carbon nanotubes as detailed in an article by Xu et al. later in the publication. Gogotsi indicates that there are potential practical applications to take advantage of this characteristic of carbon nanotubes in space vehicles, textiles, and shoe insoles.
Gogotsi's write-up was also referenced in Discovery News and R&D Magazine.
