Carbon Foam has been proven to be useful via scanning electron microscopy and for other medial and medical imaging purposes.
Carbon foam also creates a positive impact in the medical community. Carbon Foam has been used as a bone replacement in experiments and training programs since carbon foam can be made to have microstructures and mechanical properties just like bone. It can be supplied with a variety of properties, making it an attractive for experimenting with implants and other fasteners and attachments. It can be drilled, cut, and shaped with a number of instruments.
Researchers have also found that if they can bring out the magnetic behavior of carbon foam the material could have uses ranging from medical imaging to exotic electronic circuitry.
