Behaviors, properties and mechanisms, with a focus on interactions

W. Bacsa, M. Monthioux, P. Puech, V. Serin
The properties of nanosized objects are likely to be modified by the interaction with their environment, either gaseous (as in adsorption study), liquid (as in bio-environment), or solid (when considering the interactions between two nano-objects, or between nano-objects and a matrix as in composites). In most of the cases, the interactions affect the electronic structure, for which Raman spectroscopy is a powerful diagnostic tool.

Doping effect multiplying the conductivity of carbon nanotube fibers by a factor of 7

When double-wall carbon nanotubes are combined with iodine and chlorosulfonic acid, the charge transfer increases the conductivity by a factor of 7. The doping species move the Fermi level up to (...)

Probing heat flow in large graphene bubbles

The highly elastic and flexible nature of graphene allows the creation of stable large bubbles on its surface (several micrometers wide and one micrometer high) in a more or less controlled (...)

X-Ray diffraction

Reliably analyzing X-ray diffraction patterns of nanostructured graphenic carbon materials is important to relate to their properties. We have used a bottom-up approach based on atomistically (...)
