If you thought carbon nanotubes were just for making CPUs then you (just like us) were way off. It seems that in addition to their usage in building smaller and faster CPUs they can also be used to make materials that are simply out of this world as a British company has shown. Surrey NanoSystems has used carbon nanotubes to create a material so black that only 0.035% of light is reflected from it.
In research done by the firm Glassdoor where employees’ evaluated the leading business people, Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg got the best results. Specifically, Zuckerberg was supported by as much as 99% of Facebook's employees during the 12 months period that ended on 24th February, while the last year in the same survey he was supported by only 85% of them. At the same time, last year leading Apple CEO Tim Cook dropped from 99% to 85%.
With the issues that popped up over heat in Ivy Bridge we started to dig deeper into the limitations of the materials currently used. We have been following the progress of Graphene, Carbon Nanotubes, and are even on the lookout for other materials that might be used either alongside these more advanced options or perhaps even in combination (like Graphene and Nanotubes can be). Today we stumbled on an interesting article that covers a new material while also covering a new technology.
