An article entitled 'Carbon Super-Springs' in the March 2010 edition of the Mechanical Engineering magazine highlights Carol Livermore's work on energy and springs: "Carbon nanotubes have the potential to store a thousand times more mechanical energy, pound for pound, than steel springs. Lab results point to a day when nanotube-powered bikes and lawn equipment could become practical."
