The combination of remarkable mechanical properties and unique electronic properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) offers significant potential for revolutionary applications in electronics devices, computing and data storage technology, field emission devices, sensors, detectors, nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), scanning probe microscopy (SPM) for imaging and nanolithography, catalyst support, energy storage devices, and a number of other applications. Thus the CNT synthesis, characterization and applications touch upon all disciplines of science and engineering. In the last decade or so, this is the most investigated nanomaterial across the world, and applications are beginning to emerge. This webinar will provide an overview of these developments.
