Tested the integration of the BNNTs into a metal matrix
Prepared the BNNT-metal matrix nanocomposite samples for microscopy and spectroscopy analysis using a microtome for the nanometer-sized samples and polishing and cutting with diamond saws for the slightly larger ones
Analyzed the samples using different modes of SPM
Utilized Raman and FTIR spectroscopy for characterization
With further development, this nanocomposite material could become an integral part of the aerospace industry with its high strength and lower mass characteristics
Our work was on the nanoscale for materials characterization; future work will include larger scale experiments
