Carbon nanotubes possess extraordinary optical and electronic properties, tremendous strength and flexibility, and high thermal and chemical stability.

Today, carbon nanotubes are used in a wide range of applications in the automotive, aeronautics, electronics, displays, energy and health care markets.

"The materials we are making are materials with incredible properties ... the strongest materials known to man,” Arthur said.

And that made SouthWest an inviting partner for Insight investors, he said.
