Welcome to Nano@Nankai, Yongsheng Chen's group for Graphene and Carbon Nanotube
Carbon nanomaterials, including Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes(CNTs), possess remarkable properties, such as their high super mechanical strength, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, and other tunable chemical and physical properties, that make them promising candidates for a wide variety of revolutionary applications in micro electronics, flexible transprent electrode, Photovoltaic and Supercapacitor devices.
Our group has been focusing on developing Graphene and SWNTS synthesis, purification, modifications and their applications to move these two materials from a scientific curiosity to a viable component of future working technologies and applications.
