Condensed multi-wall carbon nanotubes could lead to superstrong fibers

(PDF) A paper on condensed multi-wall carbon nanotubes suggests that they could be an approach to making superstrong fibers suitable for space elevators Target of achieving 48.5+ GPa of tensile strength, good sheer strength and temperature resistance. Zhiping Xu, Lifeng Wang, and Quanshui Zheng of Tsinghua University, Beijing, China wrote the paper.
