Bulk Nanostructured Materials with Two-Dimensional Building Blocks

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Here we propose to construct bulk nanostructure materials using 2D building blocks. The goal is to achieve final bulk foam of 3D assemblies with final performance scalable from their nanostructure entities and/or with new emerging properties as a result of assembly. We also provide a roadmap defining the critical challenges and outcomes along the pathway toward assembling nanoscale entities into high-density, bulk-sized, processable engineering materials that can meet the requirements of modern applications. If such bulk nanostructured materials are successfully made, there are two appealing outcomes. We could have high-performance bulk materials where the extraordinary properties of their nanoscale units are maintained and accessible. We could also have novel bulk materials with new useful properties that transcend those of their individual building blocks. We will break the tasks down to 3 tracks (1) bulk graphenic glass, (2) high density graphene foams with continuously tunable porosity and density and (3) Other 2D materials
