Boron Nitride Converted Carbon Fibers IB-2013-032

A research team led by Alex Zettl has developed a new material, boron nitride converted carbon fibers, and an inexpensive technology for the conversion. The Berkeley Lab fibers demonstrate an increase in oxidation resistance – from 600°C for raw carbon fibers to almost 1000°C for the boron nitride...
