The AZoNano.com "Nanotech Thought Leaders" series is a collection of articles that cover the key technology areas where Nanotechnology is making an impact and where it will make an increasing impact. All the articles are written by experts who have been invited as recognised leaders in their fields to provide a "state of the art" contribution.
Dr. Xudong Wang, Associate Professor in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Wisconsin, talks to AZoNano about his research into nanogenerators used in vehicle applications for harvesting mechanical energy.
Neill Ricketts, founder of Versarien plc, talks to AZoNano.com about 2-DTech and their new proprietary graphene production technique.
Nathan Gianneschi, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at UC San Diego, talks to AZoNano about the visualization and growth of “nanoscale” chemical complexes in real time.
David Cahill, Willett Professor and Department Head of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, talks to AZoNano about his research into the manipulation of magnetic information with heat and how it can be used to manipulate magnetization at the nanoscale.
AZoNano recently published a story from Virginia Commonwealth University about novel magnetic nanoparticles which could replace the world's reliance on rare earth magnets.
In this Thought Leader interview, Dr Ania Servant, Knowledge Exchange Fellow for the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at the University of Manchester, talks to AZoNano about the fundamental challenges standing in the way of Graphene commercialisation and how the new NGI facility is working with industry to solve these challenges.
In this Thought Leader interview, Dr. Ben Colman from Duke University talks to Will Soutter about his work assessing the long-term impact of low-level concentration of silver nanoparticles.
In this Thought Leader interview, Dr Yoshiyuki Suda, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan, talks to Will Soutter from AZoNano about his recent work on the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanocoils, particularly in terms of their use in NEMS (nano electro-mechanical systems).
Tim S. Fisher, Professor at the School of Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University, talks to AZoNano about Thermal Energy Transfer in Nanomaterials.
Xuanhe Zhao, Assistant Professor at Duke University talks to AZoNano about the Application of Graphene in Artificial Muscles.
