Carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced nanostructured Cu matrix composite with a grain size less than 25 nm has been successfully fabricated via a combination of ball milling and high-pressure torsion. CNTs were found to be homogeneously dispersed into the metal matrix, leading to grain refinement with a narrow grain size distribution and significant increase in hardness.
