TEM nano-statistics investigations of structural defects in nanostructured materials under static and dynamic loading. University of Antwerp
Nature builds very complex, multifunctional systems by assembling simple building blocks in a directed manner compared to which most manmade structures are relatively simple. In a biomimetic approach, we aim to create hierarchical multi-functional one-, two- and three-dimensional structures with controlled long-range order through self-assembly of multifunctional rodlike nanoparticles. To achieve this, ...

In 2004 graphene, i.e. one single atomic layer of carbon atoms arranged according to a honeycomb structure, was successfully isolated. The perfectly two-dimensional (2D) graphene has unique electronic properties, including surprisingly high charge carrier mobility. Graphene also has excellent mechanical properties: it is a very strong material and at the same time extremely flexible. More recently, other 2D materials with similar honeycomb ...
