Abstract:The super-aligned carbon nanotube (SACNT) films reinforced copper (Cu) laminar composites with different orientations of CNT ply were fabricated by electrodeposition. The results show that the tensile strength and yield strength of cross-ply composite with 5.0% (volume fraction) of SACNT reach maximum of 336.3 MPa and 246.0 MPa respectively, increased by 74.0% and 124.5% compared with pure Cu prepared with the same method. Moreover, the electrical conductivities of all the prepared composites are over 75% IACS. The result of TEM analysis shows that the size of Cu grain and the thickness of twin lamellae can be reduced by adding SACNT, and the refining effect in cross-ply composites is more significant than that in unidirectional ply composites. The enhanced strength of the Cu/SACNT composites comes from not only the reinforcing effect of SACNT films but also the additional strengthening of the Cu grain refinement caused by CNT orientation.
