Using flexible carbon nanotubes they have developed ultra light transparent tubes which conduct electricity efficiently and are five times stronger
than steel.Possible uses are mobile phone batteries woven into garments and car windows which act as antennae,heaters or lights,and quicker-acting
The research was partly funded by the US Air Force and Dept of Defence.Possible military application is integrating power-storage devices into
garments for communication purposes,and rapid commercialisation is foreseen by the researchers.
