NanoDTC Associate awarded Polonez/Marie-Curie fellowship

last modified Jun 16, 2016 11:30 AM
NanoDTC Associate Dawid Janas has been awarded a 2-year position for foreign researchers in Poland, to carry out ambitious research projects

On 17th of May 2016 National Science Center in Poland announced the results of the Polonez competition financed by the European Commission in the Marie-Curie mobility program. From 457 applications, only 48 were recommended for funding.

Carbon nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes or graphene have showed great promises to become successors of many materials we see all around us due to their extraordinary characteristics. They have the capabilities to surpass them in terms of electrical, thermal, mechanical and other properties by orders of magnitude. The key is in gaining a precise control over their nanostructure to tailor it exactly to the specific needs. A breakthrough method developed at the University of Cambridge will be a central tool to create novel nanomaterials and gain much deeper understanding of their electrical properties at the nanoscale.

Dr Dawid Janas, Research Associate at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy will start this project in collaboration with University of Cambridge in October 2016.
