2016 Government Award Winner: Boron Nitride Nanotubes

The NASA Government Invention of the Year Award is awarded to the invention Boron Nitride Nanotubes, from the Langley Research Center. The invention includes a novel approach to synthesizing high quality boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) without a metal catalyst using a high pressure and temperature method. This is the first breakthrough discovery to produce high quality BNNTs without any catalyst at a scalable amount since the first BNNT synthesis was reported back in 1994. The BNNTs produced from this process are lightweight, stable, and exhibit high strength. This heat resistant material can be used at high service temperatures and for radiation shielding.
