GUITAR Nanosprings

Frank Cheng’s group at the University of Idaho has developed a unique allotrope of carbon that consists of cross linked platelets of graphite. The material has superior electrochemical properties, too. Another valuable aspect of Frank’s GUITAR is that it forms conformal coatings. We have created conductive  nanosprings by coating our silica nanosprings with GUITAR. Below are a few SEM images of GUITAR Nanosprings.
