Carbon nanotubes shown to protect metals against radiation damage

The MIT research could lead to nuclear reactor components that can better withstand harsh radiation

An international team of scientists led by MIT has discovered that adding small amounts of carbon nanotubes to metals makes them much more resistant to radiation damage. Though currently only proven in low-temperature metals like aluminum, the team says that the ability of the nanotubes to slow the breakdown process could improve the operating lifetimes of research and commercial reactors.
