VULVOX now has a patent pending
on our super materials shown on the Vulvox Materials webpage! US 1488452 "Ultrahigh Strength Nanomaterials And Methods Of
The patent details
a general method of manufacturing high strength ultrafine-grained nanostructured carbon and carbide materials. Coatings, films,
nanopaper, nanopaper laminates, fibers, and extended objects can be manufactured by applying the disclosed methods. The nanomaterials
are useful for additive manufacturing of rapid prototyped objects. A variety of nanoparticle starting materials are divulged
including but not limited to double walled carbon nanotubes, fluorinated graphene nanosheets, silicon nanowires, and boron
nanoplatelets. The nanomaterials and ultra high strength articles manufactured from them will have applications including
laparoscopic instruments, structural composites, heat sinks, heat spreaders, electromagnetic interference shielding, ballistic
protection, aerospace components and also; gas turbines, wind power turbines, rotor shafts, ultra lightweight high capacity
electrical cables and high current electrodes.
LPPFusion is a company working on dense plasma focus (DPF) nuclear fusion.
Dr. Eric Lerner the founder and President of LPPFusion helped plan and conduct experiments that showed DPF fusion reactors
can attain world record breaking temperatures exceeding 1.2 billion degrees.
Neil Farbstein, President
of Vulvox Nanobiotechnology Corporation suggested to LPPFusion joint development of a coating of CNT to protect the future
beryllium electrodes in the Focus Fusion generator. While more research is needed, the extraordinary qualities of CNTs may
help to reduce two sources of erosion- chemical and physical sputtering. In this process, high energy ions from the plasma
hit against atoms in the electrode, knocking them out of the material one by one. Beryllium is eroded by sputtering, and CNTs
may be still better at preventing sputtering. Due to their structure, with sheets of atoms surrounding tiny voids, CNTs can
allow high energy ions to slow down gradually, dissipating their energy without knocking off so many atoms.
LPPFusion and Vulvox Nanobiotechnology Corporation will be seeking investors and government funding to
investigate further CNT coatings of beryllium electrodes.
