Nanotechnology Standards Working Group

WELCOME to the Nanotechnology Working Group. The purpose of this site is to facilitate development of standards and to establish a knowledge management asset site for standards related activities in the nanotechnology electronics space.

Standard Methods for the Characterization of Carbon Nanotubes Used as Additives in Bulk Materials (P1690TM)


This project will develop standard methods for the characterization of carbon nanotubes used as additives in bulk materials. The methods will be independent of processing routes used to fabricate the carbon nanotubes.


The purpose of the proposed project is to provide and suggest procedures for characterization and reporting of data. These methods will enable the creation of a suggested reporting standard that will be used by research through manufacturing as the technology is developed. Moreover, the standards will recommend the necessary tools and procedures for validation.


There is currently no defined standard for the characterization of carbon nanotubes used as additives in bulk materials and the means of reporting performance and other data. Without openly defined standard test methods the acceptance and diffusion of carbon nanotube technology will be severely impeded.
