Honoring our roots as a teaching and learning culture and continuing our legacy of community building, Carbice CEO and Founder, Dr. Baratunde Cola, hosted our first Nano Morning gathering at our Atlanta headquarters this past Wednesday, March 22. Joining us were leaders from government, experts from industry and academia, and our next generation of pioneers: 15 young STEM scholars from the nearby HJ Russell West End Academy. 🚀
How nanotechnology is solving important challenges across key sectors.
The result: An inspiring morning of discussion and learning from our guests and presenters: Branden Brough, Director, and Quinn Spadola, Deputy Director, of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO); Mike Tinskey, former Head of Electrification at Ford and current Professor of the Practice at the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and Co-Founder Ionity, Ford Insure & Cobra Motorcycles; and Tyler Kunsa, Vice President of Space & Defense at SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc (SEI).

The value of nanotechnology for critical applications was clear throughout the discussion.
As Mike Tinskey of Georgia Tech shared in his talk on electrification, as growth continues across numerous sectors, competition and consumers are forcing higher performance. Thermal management is critical to address the major cooling challenges that are cascading across multiple markets, particularly with EVs: the safety of batteries, the longevity of batteries and components, vehicle performance (acceleration and top speed), and customer charge times. Mike stressed the importance of reliable thermal interface performance which leads to better thermal balance for EV batteries and lower down time for the grid – all of which can be provided by Carbice vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes.
Taking it to space, as Tyler Kunsa of SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) noted in his discussion around thermal challenges in the aerospace sector, “Anything that moves fast, we have our hands on. We do a lot of advanced systems design for the Air Force, NASA, hypersonic vehicles and reentry vehicles.” With regard to thermal management: “Space is a very difficult temperature environment to survive in and we deal with a lot of very difficult thermal problems. (Carbice) has the best-in-class thermal interface material and we will love to use it in future products to help manage our thermal systems.”

At Carbice, we love to bring people together in our community to enable more pioneers. As Dr. Baratunde Cola noted in his post on the event: “We believe that, given a chance, everyone can understand, participate in, and benefit from the value of nanotechnology.”
We look forward to the next one! 🚀
#AchieveMore with Carbice.
Carbice is the material for pioneers.™
“The mural is made for you, for Atlanta, for the community, for the country, to tell a story that includes a future that involves not only nanotechnology but the people who are a part of advancing that for the benefit of people. Which today includes you.” Dr. Baratunde Cola to the students of Herman J. Russell West End Academy, March 22, 2023—
Carbice Pads™ allow design innovation at scale with a confidence of predictability and reliability never before possible.
Carbice vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes offer a new benefit for important applications like satellites, data communications, and electrification: proven predictability. Designing with Carbice Pads™ means no more guess work, no more tradeoffs, shortened time to market and increased reliability. It allows a freedom and flexibility to design around heat for existing and evolving technologies, and it’s now used on earth and in orbit as a TRL 9 qualified advanced material for the aerospace & defense sector.
