Special symposia on carbon nanotubes
(Nanowerk News) The Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) today announced the re-creation of a special symposia on Carbon Nano Tubes to be chaired by Clayton Teague, Director, Federal National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO). The symposia, begun in 2006, will tackle one of the biggest issues in nanotechnology today – the challenges involved in the manufacture of single wall carbon nano tubes (SWCNTs) and carbon nano tubes (CNT) composites.
The symposium takes place at the 10th annual NSTI Nanotech 2007 event at the Santa Clara Convention Center, May 21-24, 2007.
"This is the premier industry event on carbon nano tubes in the world," said Dr. Bart Romanowicz, Director of the Nano Science and Technology Institute. "This program deals with the core issues surrounding CNTs. Issues like: What purity can be produced today and at what cost? What are the prospects for developing CNT-composites that are far stronger and lighter than any other material? Top scientists from Boeing, NIST, Dupont, NASA Ames Research Center, Zyvex, MIT and Lockheed Martin will spearhead the talks."
