Interface design of metal nanocluster-carbon nanotube hybrids via control of structural and chemical defects in a plasma discharge

Project: Research

Description

Based on a very recent set of exploratory experiments performed within the consortium, this project will take benefit of the numerous plasma discharge operating parameters combined with plasma diagnostic tools, to fine tune and understand the physical properties of the treatment, and CONTROL the INTERFACIAL (chemical and structural) DEFECTS that will rule the deposition and growth of METAL NANOCLUSTERS deposited in the plasma onto CARBON NANOTUBE surfaces.
