Lavoisier Discussion 2017

Adsorption and confinement effects of molecules in/on nanotubes

Nanotubes have emerged recently as an intriguing template for the formation of new hybrid nanostructures. Confinement effects, aggregation states and coupling of the molecules within the 1D structure of nanotube enable original physical properties of the hybrid object and has inspired various applications for bio-detection, nanotube doping, drug delivery, nano-optics, nano-chemistry etc.

The objectives of this mini-colloquium is to gather and foster discussions on the challenges related to the fabrication, the spectroscopy and the applicative fields of these1D hybrids. It will be organized through the Lavoisier discussions initiated and supported by the GDRi Graphene Nanotubes.

The 2 days’ discussion will take place in Paris at the end of 2017 and will consist in a limited number of invited or contributed talks mixed with formal and informal discussion moments.

More details will be posted soon.
