HRH The Duke of York visits carbon nanotube fibre-spinning rig during its “maiden flight”.

On October 30 2013, His Royal Highness The Duke of York visited the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy; it was also the first the first time our carbon nanotube spinning rig ran in its new home in West Cambridge.

His Royal Highness The Duke of York, was accompanied by the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire and members of his office, had a tour through the labs of the Department of Materials Science's new building. His visit included a stop at our fibre spinning rig, which became operational the same morning of his visit. Prof. Alan Windle and Dr. Thurid Gspann explained the synthesis process and potential applications of our unique carbon nanotube yarns while Mr. Jerónimo Terrones, inside the spinning booth, collected the first samples produced in West Cambridge.
