John Hart speaks at the MIT Research and Development conference, with a talk titled “Principles and processes for scalable nanomanufacturing”.
“Nanostructured materials offer incredible potential to enhance and enable critical technologies, including energy storage systems, composite structures, medical devices, and next-generation electronics. Realization of these and further unimagined possibilities will hinge on the design of innovative manufacturing processes, along with novel machines and metrology tools to populate the factory floor. Hart shares his perspective on the research and technology principles needed to enable truly scalable nanomanufacturing. As case studies from recent work, he described a novel roll-to-roll CVD reactor for high-speed growth of 2D materials such as graphene, and self-assembly of carbon nanotubes into 3D microstructures.”
