molecular nanostructures group
Carbon nanotubes and graphene are made of a single layer of covalently bonded carbon atoms. The electrical, optical, chemical and mechanical properties of these molecular nanostructures are outstanding, which is why CNTs and graphene are considered as important new materials for high speed electronics, optoelectronics, sensing, coatings, material reinforcements and other potential applications.
The molecular nanostructure group has been established in collaboration with the Institute of Nanotechnology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Our mission is to advance carbon nanotube and graphene research and to implement these fascinating materials.
