Abstract

An optimum route to synthesize Al2O3-based composite powders with a homogeneous dispersion of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) was investigated. CNT/Metal/Al2O3 nanocomposite powders were fabricated by thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) over a metal catalyst homogeneously dispersed into an Al2O3 matrix by the means of chemical and selective reduction processes. The nanocomposite powders were densified by Pulse Electric Current Sintering (PECS). The experimental results show that the CNT/Metal/Al2O3 nanocomposites have unique electrical properties.
