Whitby, R.L.D., Fukuda, T., Maekawa, T., Mikhalovsky, S.V. and Cundy, A.B. (2010) Real-time imaging of complex nanoscale mechanical responses of carbon nanotubes in highly-compressible porous monoliths Nanotechnology, 21 (7). ISSN 0957-4484Full text not available from this repository.
A facile and rapid assembly of powdered carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into compressible, porous, macroscale monoliths is reported. Despite a Poisson's ratio just above zero, we found that the sample under compression inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM) revealed CNT regions behaving in auxetic and vortex-like rotational modes as well as standard collapse responses. This method is crucial in understanding the macroscale behaviour based on the accumulation of nanoscale responses to an applied force.
