KSEF RDE: Hybrid Carbon Nanotube-Graphene Materials for Nanoelectronic Devices

Grants and Contracts Details


Two of the most exciting materials discovered over the last few decades have been carbon nanotubes and graphene, with both of these materials having remarkable electronic properties. Hybrid composites of these closely related sp2 bonded materials are expected to show novel electronic properties beyond the behavior of the two individual constituents and could transform future nanoscale devices due to the potential diversity of their interactions. This project will investigate the fundamental interactions between nanotubes and graphene when they are combined and their use in novel nanoscale electronic devices. The diversity of electronic interactions will be explored through variation of their bonding. These test devices will be constructed through scanning probe nanomanipulation and modification while being investigated with scanning probes and electronic transport measurements.
