Title

Survivability of Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes During Friction Stir Processing

Abstract

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were added to aluminium using friction stir processing (FSP). The SWCNTs survived the thermal and stress cycles involved with friction stir processing. The Raman spectroscopy and SEM results are presented. Potential applications of nanotubes inserted into metals by this method are discussed.
