Symposium NM01-Nanotubes, Graphene and Related Nanostructures

Carbon nanotubes, graphene, and other related nanostructures (including those of boron nitride, and boron), have attracted tremendous attention for their intriguing properties. These nanomaterials have been widely investigated, from theory, synthesis, and characterization to applications in electronic devices, mechanical reinforcement, energy conversion and storage, biological and chemical sensors, etc. This symposium will emphasize the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of these carbon and non-carbon nanostructures as well as emerging technologies that aid in the understanding and preparation of such materials, such as artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing. We will bring together researchers from different disciplines to discuss the fundamental and industrial aspects of theory, synthesis, characterization, chemical and biochemical methods for purification and assembly, toxicity and bio-compatibility, and applications in electronics, chemistry, biochemistry, mechanical reinforcement, etc.

Topics will include:

  • Synthesis, doping, and characterization
  • Theoretical study of growth, doping, and emerging behavior including electronic and magnetic structure, and properties
  • Electron transport and scanning tunneling microscopy studies.
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Energy harvesting, conversion, and storage
  • Optical spectroscopy
  • Applications in transparent and flexible conductors, actuator, sensor, transistors, etc.
  • Molecular approaches for purification, modification, and sorting
  • CNT, BNNT as well as their 2D counterpart on biomolecule interactions: biochemical applications and toxicity studies
  • Synthesis and characterization of B-C-N thin films and other novel structures, Hierarchical organization
  • One-dimensional carbon-based heterostructures including functionalized carbon nanotubes
  • Graphene nanoribbons, nanoflakes, and other novel carbon-based nanostructures such as carbyne and graphdiyne
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
