Research topics:

  • Carbon nanotube composites for electric generator applications. The project is funded by Cambridge Trust.
  • Carbon nanostructures like carbon nanotubes and graphene with their unique properties, flexibility and lightweight have been paving the way towards next generation, smart materials particularly in the domain of energy storage devices of the future. This project aims to exploit the potential of macroscopic assemblies of carbon nanotube films and fibres for storing the energy.
  • In particular, the project is aimed at understanding the coupling between mechanical stress and electrical and thermal conductivities, based on the unique internal structure of the nanotube films/fibres. Physical capabilities of the carbon nanostructures will be measured as a function of morphology and macroscopic geometry. The microstructure will be characterised by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy and a set of techniques will be used to assess the energy storage performance.
