This program focuses on developing research related to scalable processing of advanced materials and nanomaterials. We have expertise in synthesis of carbon nanostructures such carbon nanotubes (CNT) and CNT cotton by both batch and continuous chemical vapour deposition (CVD) processes. The existing know how and facilities in CVD processing open other venues for research such as superconductor thin film and bottom-up synthesis of graphene and homologous graphene. Scalable top-down processes for preparation of graphene oxide and graphene quantum dots are also being actively pursued. Other scalable processes for synthesis of advanced materials and nanomaterials include hydrothermal and solvo thermal approaches.
