Scope of Symposium

Carbon nanotubes are one of the most important building blocks and materials in nanotechnology. Their unique combination of nano-sized diameter with macroscopic length scale has lead to many new phenomena and properties. Progress in large-scale synthesis, control of their structural properties, thin film transparent electrodes and nano-composites continues to widen their application in many new technologies.

Carbon nanotube research has over a short period time generated sufficient critical mass to be known as emerging technology on its own. This material is of high importance to the materials research community as it covers a broad range of fundamental understanding in nano-science as well as applications.
