Nanoparticle synthesis via precipitation from solution

Article written by V. Cregan, CRM Nanotechnology is predicted to play a profound role in the future by impacting a variety of fields such as medicine, renewable energy, industrial production, amongst others. Nanoparticles, small units of matter with dimensions in the range 1-100 nm, lie at the interface of bulk materials and atomic structures, and […]

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica Blog

For the remainder of June the ECMI Blog will be under the control of the CRM. Consequently there will be a significant bias towards mathematics in nanotechnology. In the next few days we will publish short articles on nanocrystal growth, nanoparticle evolution (by the Anile prize winner) and also some bad examples of applying mathematics at […]

More nanomaths … Coexistence of wrinkles and blisters in supported graphene

Coexistence of wrinkles and blisters in supported graphene Kuan Zhang (LaCàN, U. Politècnica de Catalunya) and Marino Arroyo (LaCàN, UPC) During this project we examined the mechanics of bubbles in supported graphene. In experiments, graphene bubbles have been observed with different sizes and shapes. The reported radii of the circular edges of quasi-spherical bubbles range from dozens […]
