CNMM International Workshop on Sept. 11-12
With joint support of the National Natural Science Foundation, Tsinghua University, Nanchang University and National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, CNMM held international workshop on September 11-12, 2011 at conference room of National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, Beijing. Professor Quanshui Zheng from Tsinghua University and Professor Rodney S. Ruoff,from University of Texas at Austin,chaired the meeting. The theme of this workshop "Impact of Deformation on Nanoscale Properties and Devices" (emphasis in graphene), aims to brings internationally renowned scientists together in related fields, showing the latest progress in recent years, and discussing material application, deformation, characterized , electronics, chemistry, interface, transport, devices and sensors, energy and other major scientific issues.
More than 80 teachers, students and researchers From universities and research institutions from all over the country attended international workshop. During the workshop, participants carried out extensive exchanges and lively discussions, a clear deformation of nano-scale is the key element to obtain specific physics, chemistry, biology, mechanical properties and device. Graphene with a unique two-dimensional structure of a single atomic layer, strong coupling of multiple characteristics and evolution caused by multi-dimensional deformation bring new capabilities for device applications.The workshop was completely successful. All research participants based on common interests, enhance mutual understanding, reach a preliminary consensus on cooperation especially in this new two-dimensional graphene materials, and strive to use their strengths, learn from each other, carry out innovative research, and achieve international influence of scientific research.
