Following on the very successful 1st and 2nd International Workshops on NanoCarbon, the 3rd workshop will focus on properties of carbon structures for a range of applications. This includes electronic properties of graphene, nanotubes, nanodiamond films, carbon heterostructures and applications in energy generation and storage, carbon-based sensors, synthesis of novel carbon structures and catalysts based on carbon materials. This workshop will bring together several world experts with local experts in related fields in order to investigate the crossroads of nano-diamond and nano carbon and the benefits this synergy can bring.
