Research Activities

Recent developments on single-component carbon nanomaterials such as 1D carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and 2D graphene have paved the way to use these interesting materials for a broad range of devices and applications ranging from biomedical implants to more sophisticated applications such as energy-storage systems needed to power up flexible smart wearable garments and miniaturized electronic gadgets. However, the strong direction-dependent properties of these materials resulting from their very weak out-of?plane transport properties has necessitated the need to explore ways to extend their properties into the third dimension. Regardless of their importance for both fundamental and industrial applications, the development of methodic approaches to process these nano-scaled 2D and 1D materials based on their inherent anisotropic properties to achieve higher-ordered self-assembled complex 3D architectures is still a largely unexplored area. Therefore, probing and quantifying the dynamic behavior of such nano-systems is an immediate challenge that, if addressed, will be instrumental in extending our general understanding of the mechanics involved in order to deliberately translate their intrinsic properties into the design process and device applications. This challenge, if resolved, can serve as a platform to process these materials at industrially highly-scalable levels for a whole range of both novel and existing applications such as coatings, fillers, molecular electronics, wearables, smart garments, RDIF devices, printed electronics, organic field effective transistors, 3D bionic scaffolds and implantable biomedical devices.
