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.
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.com 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.com about the characterisation and standardisation of graphene and other 2D materials.
Professor Andrea Ferrari, Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre, talks to AZoNano.com 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.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.
