Surrey NanoSystems has created a new type of "super-black" material known as Vantablack
Vantablack absorbs 99.96 percent of incident radiation
Vantablack is produced using a patented, low-temperature carbon nanotube growth process
A newly produced material is believed to be the "blackest" ever created. Vantablack is a pure carbon coating and absorbs 99.96 percent of incident radiation (solar energy as it hits the material's surface). Manufacturer Surrey NanoSystems believes that is the highest such figure ever recorded.
