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.
