One and two dimensional crystalline materials: industrial applications

graphene nanotubes nanowires

Sunday, May 14, 2017, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Gaylord National Convention Center, Washington, DC

Technology Focus

This workshop provides an overview of potential industrial applications of one and two dimensional crystalline materials with a particular focus on graphene , carbon nanotubes and inorganic nanowires. Crystalline low dimensional materials with exceptional properties have an enormous potential to lead to a wide range of applications starting from composites, coatings, conducting paint, cables or their use in electronics, photonics, energy generation and storage, sensors and others. There has been a tremendous progress over the last decade in the synthesis and assembling of low dimensional crystalline materials and the prospects for certain applications is highly diverse.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop would be appropriate for anyone who needs to have up to date information and an overview on recent advances in the application of low dimensional crystalline materials.

Workshop Content

  • Introduction to low one and two dimensional materials
  • Challenges and progress in synthesis
  • Improving mechanical properties and vibration damping of composites
  • Improving electrical conductivity and related applications
  • Improving electrodes and related applications
  • Improving thermal conductivity and related applications
