International, student-run conference about the latest topics in Carbon Nanoscience

Students from the Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science Departments have teamed up and are organising an international, one-day symposium about Carbon Nanoscience.

Students from the Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science Departments have teamed up and are organising an international, one-day symposium about Carbon Nanoscience. The scope of the "Cambridge CNT Symposium 2009" covers the fabrication and use of nano-scale, rolled-up sheets of carbon atoms (Carbon Nanotubes) for applications in electronics, structural materials and biotechnology as well as the current hot topic in solid state physics: graphene, single atomic layers of carbon atoms. The non-profit, student-run conference is running for the third year, with over 100 participants in 2008. The symposium will feature lectures from high-profile speakers as well as the opportunity for students and researchers to present their latest work.

Subjects included are:

  • Nanotube synthesis and purification
  • Large-scale production, quality-control
  • Graphene and nanoribbons synthesis
  • Mechanical properties, composite and hybrid materials
  • Electronic and optical properties
  • Functionalisation and modification, tailoring of properties
  • Devices for electronic, photonic, energy, and sensor applications
  • Biomedical impact and applications
  • Theory and modelling

The symposium will be held on the 13th November at St. John's College. Registration deadline: 23rd Oct 2009.
