|Carbon Nanotubes: Synthesis, Properties and Applications
Presented by Chongwu Zhou, Full professor of Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California (USC).
Time: 14:00 p.m., Dec 09, 2013
Location: A718, SINANO
Chair: Yuegang Zhang
Nanoscale materials rank among the most exciting new developments in modern science and engineering. This talk will focus on our recent work on controlled synthesis and applications of carbon nanotubes. We will present the synthesis of massively aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes atop sapphire and quartz substrates, and we will also present our recent progress toward type-controlled and chirality-controlled carbon nanotube synthesis. In addition, we will report macroelectronics based on separated nanotube thin film transistors, including key technology components such as assembly of separated nanotube networks, high-yield fabrication of devices, and applications for AMOLED displays and printed electronics.
