“The superior characteristics of nanocarbon make it an extremely promising material for numerous current and future applications.
“Light and flexible nanocarbon materials conduct electricity better than copper and have greater mechanical strength than steel. They are also good thermal conductors and have great potential for use in reinforced composites, nanoelectronics, sensors and nanomechanical devices,” says professor Esko I. Kauppinen, the director of Aalto University’s NanoMaterials research group.
Recently, significant advances have been made in the development of nanocarbon materials and their applications. The International Symposium on Nanocarbon Materials gathered the world’s cutting-edge nanocarbon material researchers to Aalto University.”
