Dr. Bor Jang is a keynote speaker at the 2nd International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications. He will discuss "Nano Graphene For Energy Applications." Hosted by the International Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (a trade name for International ASET) and the University of Ottawa, the event opened today and will run through July 29, 2011 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The conference encourages a multi-disciplinary approach in emerging scientific topics such as nanotechnology.
Jang began studying graphene in 2000 and submitted the world's first patent for single layer graphene in 2002 and the first patent on graphene reinforced metal, glass, carbon and ceramic-matrix composites and single layer graphene-reinforced polymer composites. Co-founder of Nanotek Instruments and Angstron Materials, Jang and his team continue to develop and patent methods to produce and functionalize graphene and have patents pending and issued for applications that focus on batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells and composites.
Angstron Materials is the world's largest producer of nano graphene platelets (NGPs), Angstron's single layer graphene has exhibited the highest electrical properties including exceptional in-plane electrical conductivity (up to ~ 20,000 S/cm) when compared to other nanomaterials including carbon nano-tubes (CNTs) and carbon nano-fibers (CNFs). Angstron Materials offers a variety of graphene materials in sizes ranging from nano to micron in the x, y and z axis.
These advanced materials are collectively referred to as nano graphene platelets (NGPs). NGPs offer improved material performance and superior mechanical, thermal, barrier and electrical conductivity properties. As a result, Angstron is able to work with companies to functionalize graphene for specific applications that include batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, light weight structural components as well as electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), electrostatic discharge (ESD), lightning strike and other functional and structural composite applications.
Angstron uses its research and development expertise to partner with customers throughout the commercialization process, reducing time and costs while improving performance. NGPs are surface functionalizable for polymer and common solvent applications and can offer loadings of up to 40 percent weight for a variety of applications. Angstron combines real world technology to create next generation products in the aerospace, automotive, energy, marine, construction, electronics, medical, military and telecommunications markets.
