#54 - (22a) Carbon Nanotubes II: Characterization, Functionalization and Applications (TF003)
This session focuses on carbon nanotube applications including the issues regarding their processing and characterization. The session will feature technology that exploits the novel electronic, electro-mechanical, optical, and structural properties of carbon nanotubes for the solution of engineering problems. Topics include fuel cells and catalysis, sensors, field effect transistors and other electronic devices, polymer composites, nanotube electrodes, electro-mechanical devices, and energy absorbing materials. The session will also include papers focusing on processing techniques such as purification, separation and chemical functionalization that are necessary to develop nanotube-based technologies. Also included are papers dealing with characterization methods for carbon nanotube materials.
