Carbon nanostructures (CNS) provide some of the most promising materials in nanotechnology and have already found commercial application in a range of applications. The combination of molecular sized diameter with macroscopic length scale and with optical and electrical conductance in carbon nanotubes leads to novel properties. Structures such as carbon nanohorns provide exceptionally large surfaces areas at the nanoscale. Progress in large scale synthesis, precise positioning and assembling on semiconductor surfaces, electrical connection to electrodes and new methods for incorporating and dispersing CNS in a solid matrix continues to widen their application range.

This event will also incorporate sessions from the special Nanotech 2014 Graphene symposium. Papers on graphene synthesis and applications can be submitted in either location.

Please join industrial and academic innovators at this exciting event.
