Optical Spectroscopy of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Under Extreme Conditions
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are one of the leading candidate materials to realize novel nanoscale photonic devices. In order to assess their performance characteristics as optoelectronic materials, it is crucial ...
Key steps towards carbon nanotube-based conductors
Making a robust carbon nanotube-based conductor as a replacement of copper in electricity grids can initiate a paradigm shift in energy transmission. This dissertation identifies four fundamental factors for making carbon ...
Catalytic processes simulated at nano-scale: Growth of graphitic structures and functionalized graphene explained
Key dynamic processes at nano-scale, such as graphene hydrogenation and fluorination, and carbon nanotube (CNT) growth, cannot be observed in situ in real time. Nevertheless, such processes can be studied through complementary ...
A Multiscale Model of the Enhanced Heat Transfer in a CNT-Nanofluid System
Over the last decade, much research has been done to understand the role of nanoparticles in heat transfer fluids. While experimental results have shown "anomalous" thermal enhancements and non-linear behavior with respect ...
Coated Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Fibers: Synthesis and Applications
Carbon nanotubes have been of great interest given their unique electronic and mechanical properties. Scholars have focused on the addition of carbon nanotubes to various matrices in order to develop novel materials. These ...
