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.
Prof. Owen Guy, Director of Swansea University's Centre for Nanohealth, spoke to AZoNano about his research into graphene biosensors; which hold the promise of the rapid and accurate detection of disease in it's early stages.
In this interview, Mike Blok, co-founder of Project Nano, an initiative designed to bring nanoscience and nanotechnology into schools using a Phenom desktop scanning electron microscope, speaks about the project and its successes.
Dr. Antonietta Gatti, Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, talks to AZoNano about her new book 'Case Studies in Nanotoxicology and Particle Toxicology'.
Professor Kevin O'Grady, head of the Magnetic Materials Research Group in the Physics Department at The University of York, talks to AZoNano about measuring magneto-thermal heating effects in magnetic nanoparticle research.
James Baker, Business Director at the National Graphene Institute (NGI), talks to AZoNano about the successful commercialisation of graphene and the important role collaborative work between research and industry will play.
Dr. Andrew Pollard, Graphene Research Scientist at NPL, talks to AZoNano about the characterisation and standardisation of graphene and other 2D materials.
Professor Andrea Ferrari, Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre, talks to AZoNano about the commercial future of graphene.
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 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.
