Conference Scope

Carbon nanotubes have many fascinating properties, owing to their quasi one-dimensional structure. This creates a wide range of issues for fundamental research, as well as a wealth of opportunities for technological application. Progress in the field over the past few years has been remarkable, and applications for this unique material are starting to make the move from the laboratory into the mainstream. In the tradition of the NT conference series, this meeting will bring leading researchers in the area of nanotube science and technology together to evaluate the current state of the art and to identify current trends. The conference will encompass the frontiers of fundamental science as well as applied research, and will enable and encourage participants to exchange their latest ideas and results.

Topics receiving special attention include:

  • Mechanical properties of nanotubes and nanotube-based composites
  • Electronic properties of nanotubes and nanotube-based electronic devices
  • Optical characterization and optical properties
  • Progress in synthesis
  • Purification and sorting of nanotubes
  • Chemical processing and modification of nanotubes
  • Applications for nanotubes

Format of the Conference:

The main "general session" of the NT10 conference is 4 days long with a combination of invited talks (5 keynotes and 10 invited), contributed presentations (about 25 selected from submitted abstracts), and poster sessions (6 sessions).

Preceding the main conference are 4 satellite workshops, each up to 2 days long, addressing specific topics, and each with additional invited talks and contributed talks selected from submitted abstracts.

Also preceding the main conference is a tutorial session intended primarily for graduate students. At the poster sessions, there will also be exhibitors displaying materials and equipment of interest to nanotube researchers.
