The nanocomposite copper wire is currently more than twice as conductive as pure copper and with continuous improvement could ultimately reach more than 100 times the conductivity of copper. It promises to improve the performance of electric machines and dramatically reduce the size and weight of motors. It also will reduce losses in electrical power lines.
This breakthrough could revolutionize a wide range of applications, from residential wiring to the creation of lighter high-performance motors for aircraft, electric cars, electric submarines and other vehicles.
