Carbon nanostructures (CNS) provide some of the most promising materials in nanotechnology and have already found commercial application in a range of applications. In electronics the combination of molecular sized diameter with macroscopic length scale, and with optical and electrical conductance, enable innovative new devices. CNS composites can provide remarkable mechanical properties, electrical and thermal conductivity, advanced shielding, and barrier properties for new products and engineering applications. CNS can provide new functionality in biomedical applications such as sensors and imaging or drug delivery. Progress in large scale synthesis, precise positioning and assembling on semiconductor surfaces, electrical connection to electrodes and new methods for incorporating and dispersing CNS in a composite matrix continue to widen their application range. Submit an abstract and join researchers from around the world as we discuss applications-focused research and innovation in carbon nano structures and devices.
