Carbon nanomaterials have many potential applications due to their extraordinary electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties. These properties rely on their unique nanoscale structures.
Advanced carbon research lab led by Prof. Yuan Chen at the University of Sydney focuses on developing scalable processes to synthesize carbon nanomaterials with well-defined atomic structures, assemble nanoscale carbon nanomaterials into functional macroscale structures, and use these novel materials for sustainable energy and environmental applications.
