Influence of Defects on the Strength of Graphene and Carbon Nanotube
As with every material, the presence of a crystallographic defect influences the material properties. Defects can occur in various forms with significant effect. With high levels of such defects can lower the tensile strength by up to 85 % . In general, three types of defects are reported in the CNTs [2, 3].
