Abstract

Recently, micro-architected materials have garnered a great deal of attention. Micro- architected materials have a designed internal structure that can alter the strength, density, and other critical properties of a material by orders of magnitude1,2. The Daraio group at Caltech has recently begun to study the mechanical behavior of nano-reinforced micro lattices with various architectures. The preliminary findings demonstrate that the presence of exceedingly low amounts of nanofillers lead to a significant increase in the stiffness and strength of the micro-architected composite material. We will present the measured mechanical and electrical properties of the CNT-reinforced (carbon-nanotube) lattices.
