The preparation of double-walled carbon nanotube/Cu composites by spark plasma sintering, and their hardness and friction properties

Abstract

Double-walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT)/copper composite powders were prepared by a rapid route involving freeze-drying without oxidative acidic treatment or ball-milling. The DWCNTs are not damaged and are homogeneously dispersed in the matrix. Dense specimens were prepared by spark plasma sintering. The Vickers microhardness is doubled, the wear against a steel or an alumina ball seems very low and the average friction coefficient is decreased by a factor of about 4 compared to pure copper. The best results are obtained for a carbon loading (5 vol%) significantly lower than those reported when using multi-walled carbon nanotubes (10–20 vol%). Maximum Hertzian contact pressure data could indicate that the surface DWCNTs and bundles of them are deformed and broken, possibly resulting in the formation of a graphitized lubricating tribofilm in the contact
