Special Symposium

Graphene has received world-wide attention as a result of the 2010 Nobel Prize for physics and due to its exceptional thermal, electrical, optical, barrier and mechanical properties. This special symposium will bring industry and academic leaders together as we go beyond the fundamental research to explore innovations in synthesis and production and to understand the business and regulatory issues affecting the commercialization of graphene. These factors will impact the remarkable potential for this material in many applications including energy applications, composites, thermal management and coatings.

This special symposium will be organized in conjunction with the Nanotech 2014 Carbon Nanostructures and Devices symposium.
