RusNanoTech Forum 2010

The UK NanoMission to Russia was organised by the International NanoMicroClub as a join initiative between the Institute of Nanotechnology and the Nanotechnology KTN funded by The Technology Strategy Board of the UK Government. Dr Bojan Boskovic from the Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd has been awarded a travel grant and has attended the RusNanoTech Forum 2010 as a part of the UK NanoMission to Russia 2010. The call for grant applications for the UK SEMs to attend the RusNanoTech Forum 2010 as a part of the UK NanoMission has been announced in August 2010:


The RUSNANOTECH Forum serves as a global platform for scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, financial experts, and public officials from federal and regional government agencies for the discussion of issues related to innovation development and ongoing formation of the nanotech industry. In 2009, more than 11,000 people from 78 RF regions and 38 countries around the world took part in Forum activities. The Forum exhibition featured the presentation of exhibits, projects and innovations by 340 companies. At the various sections offered under the Forum Science & Technology and Business Programs, expo visitors can gain information on promising nanotech research, and, more importantly, receive a roadmap to its successful commercialization, effective investment generation, and the creation of market demand for nanotech products. Rusnanotech Forum Fund for the Nanotechnology Development (Rusnanotech Forum Fund) was established on January 26, 2010. The Fund activity is focused on nanoindustry development in Russia and nanotechnologies and innovations popularization worldwide. According to the resolution of the RUSNANO Supervisory Council and Board of Directors, the organization of the annual Nanotechnology International Forum RUSNANOTECH is assigned to Rusnanotech Forum Fund. The 3rd Nanotechnology International Forum RUSNANOTECH 2010 has been held at the Moscow Expocentre November 1–3, 2010. The President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev has opened the RUSNANOTECH 2009 and given a speech at the RUSNANOTECH 2010 plenary session.

Stuttgart NanoDays 2010

The Stuttgart NanoDays 2010 conference has been held in Stuttgart from 27 to 28 September 2010. Dr Bojan Boskovic from Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology has given a presentation as an invited speaker at the conference.

The conference scope covers four focus sessions: carbon nanotube actuators, transparent conductive films, lightweight materials and advanced composites:

Nano Carbon Materials

Carbon nanomaterials are major keystones of modern nanoscience, starting from fullerenes discovered in 1985, through carbon nanotubes (1991), and ending at the recent discovery from 2004 – graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice of carbon atoms. The field of graphene-related research has grown at a spectacular pace since single-layer flakes were first isolated. What began as an exciting material for fundamental physics has now become the focus of efforts by scientists in a wide range of disciplines. Materials scientists are busily working on new synthesis routes, while engineers are designing novel devices to exploit graphene’s extraordinary properties. In light of such collaborations, it is difficult to believe that the future for graphene is anything but bright.

Low Voltage Actuators

Since the original pioneering work in carbon nanotube actuators several years ago, major strides have been made in our understanding of the processes involved in nanotube actuation. Today, the field is quickly filling the gap between demonstration and application. This session will give today’s perspective of the challenges faced by commercialization of nanotube-based actuators and where they may play a role within the marketplace.

Lightweight Materials

In industries such as aircraft and automotive, breakthrough technologies in high-strength, lightweight materials will result in fuel efficiency, a lower carbon footprint and carbon dioxide emission. A novel new approach to metal matrix materials with higher mechanical, tensile strength and higher thermal conductivity involves using carbon nanotubes incorporated directly into metal structures. This session will address the advances in this field and the potential for realizing meaningful improvements to structural material properties.

Flexible Electronics

Transparent conductive oxides (TCOs) such as Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) currently provide the only available approach to flexible organic optoelectronic devices such as polymer photovoltaics, organic light emitting diodes, and transparent transistors for head-up display technologies. TCOs face many challenges including rapidly increasing costs, poor adherence to plastic substrates and significant near-infrared absorption. Recent advances in the transparency and conductivity of heterogeneous carbon nanotube films make them an excellent alternative material for TCOs. This session will present the carbon nanotube qualities that outperform TCOs in the context of synthesis and processing.
