German manufacturer BMW together with a British company Surrey NanoSystem present a new model X6 Vantablack VBx2 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in early September. The car body will be painted with a special dye that absorbs up to 99.9% of the light. This effect is called "two-dimensional blackness."
It's about substance Vantablack (vertically aligned nanotube arrays + black), which translates as "vertically aligned arrays of nanotubes + black." This substance can be characterized as a substance of carbon nanotubes. It is the blackest known substance. It absorbs 99.96% of the radiation incident on it: visible light, as well as microwaves and radio waves (for comparison: the blackest coal absorbs 96% of light).
It consists of planting vertical nanotubes that “grow” on aluminum foil; photons getting on Vantablackare lost between these nanotubes and, practically without being reflected back, turn into heat. This substance was first introduced by scientists from the National Physical Laboratory of Great Britain and Surrey NanoSystems at the air show Farnborough in July 2014.
And the first car to receive the blackest color in the world will be the eminent crossover BMW X6. The official presentation in Germany is scheduled for the first days of September. Earlier coverage Vantablack used only in the aviation segment. Jars with the blackest paint are already on sale, they are sold by the company Surrey NanoSystem.
