Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF MANUFACTURING NANOTUBE STRUCTURES
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES DE PRODUCTION DE STRUCTURES NANOTUBULAIRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tube manufacturing system (10) is provided that is capable of manufacturingtube structures that are on the nanoscale and larger. The system provides for control as to the structure and atomic makeup of the feed sheet material (5) used and provides motive force to the sheet material (5) being used to continuously advance the sheet material through the various system components. Rollers (17 and 18) are used for cutting sheet material (5). The rollers (17 and 18) may have troughs to place a sufficient mechanical force on the sheet material. After the tube structures are formed, they may be used in providing a source material for manufacturing macroscopic objects thus increasing the level of performance and capabilities of such objects due to the engineered properties of the tube structures formed within this system (1) and method of manufacturing. Processes for manufacturing of nanotubes are also disclosed, as are nanotubes manufactured by the processes and system of the invention.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de production de tubes conçu pour la production de structures tubulaires à l'échelle nanométrique et à des échelles supérieures. Ce système permet de commander la structure et la composition atomique du matériau d'alimentation en feuille et fournit une force motrice au matériau en feuille utilisé pour le faire avancer en continu dans les divers composants système. Après leur formation, les structures tubulaires peuvent être utilisées en tant que matériau source pour la production d'objets macroscopiques, ce qui permet d'améliorer le niveau de performance et les capacités desdits objets en raison des propriétés élaborées des structures tubulaires formées au moyen desdits système et procédé de production. L'invention concerne également des procédés de production de nanotubes, ainsi que lesdits nanotubes obtenus selon les procédés et le système de l'invention.
