CUNY Advanced Science Seminar: "Engineering of Nanostructures"
The talk will discuss Dr. Ajayan's recent efforts in engineering nanostructured materials from building blocks that range in size, dimensionality and properties. The idea of engineering nanostructures to build functional materials captures the essence of nanotechnology and the challenges and opportunities in this area will be highlighted. One dimensional nanostructures such as carbon nanotubes and recent advances in the applications of these, as well as the emergence of two-dimensional atomic layers as novel building blocks will be considered. The controlled building of three-dimensional nanostructured architectures will be another case in point. The talk will highlight engineered nanomaterials as a platform for several applications that include nanocomposites, energy storage, low dimensional devices etc.
