Nanotubes belong to a class of materials which owing to their
quasi one-dimensional structure exhibit a variety of fascinating
properties and offer a diversity of issues for research of both
fundamental and practical interest. This meeting will bring
leading scientists in the area of nanotube science together
to evaluate past and define future trends of this exciting field.
The conference will address progress at the frontiers of fundamental
as well as applied research and will allow participants to exchange
ideas and results of their latest work in an informal atmosphere.
Topics receiving special attention include:
- Mechanical properties of nanotubes and composite
- Electronic and optical properties
- Progress in nanotube synthesis and purification
- Chemical modification and tailoring of nanotube properties
- Large-scale production
