Application Specific Research in Nanotechnology - W. Jud Ready
From Katie Gentilello
The GTRI Nanotechnology lab focuses on the study electronic applications of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The applications are primarily focused on the use of CNTs to form a 3-D light-trapping array for novel photovoltaic cells and as a field emission source for Hall Effect thrusters for satellite propulsion. Other CNT-enabled applications being studied are electrochemical double layer supercapacitors, batteries and CNT-functionalized fabrics as well as the use of CNTs in biological applications such as neuronal prosthetics.
