Workshop on Inorganic Nanotubes Experiment and theory

September 2-4, 2009. DIPC, San Sebastián

Aim and Objective

Nanotubes have attracted much attention of experimentalists and theorists. The informations about construction, synthesis and properties of the carbon nanotubes were published in numerous publications and books. At present, not only these new allotropes of carbon focus on fundamental research, but they find also its way in many applications.

Simultaneously with the discovery of the carbon nanotubes a question appeared - the nanotubular structures can be produced only based on carbon? The synthesis of the noncarbon nanotubes was realized in 1992 based on the molybdenum and tungsten disulphides. The hollow 1D nanostructures are not the exclusive phenomena for carbon, but they are possible for other compounds such as MoS2 and WS2! During last 15 years the nanotubes of almost a dozen of inorganic compounds were discovered. Although the inorganic nanotubes were observed soon, one year after the carbon nanotubes, a systematic view on their synthesis, their properties and their potentials for applications is still very limited.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for communication amongst scientists working in the field of Inorganic Nanotubes. Similar to the vast development on Carbon Nanotubes we hope to encourage the generation of new ideas for the development of novel nanotubular systems and their properties bringing together scientists working both experimentally and theoretically on Inorganic Nanotubes. The frame of the workshop is planned to be small (around 30 participants) to provide a productive scientific enviroment for interesting and exciting ideas. We expect three days of exciting lectures given by highly recognized speakers from the Inorganic Nanotube field.

The range of topics will be rather broad and will consider experimental as well as theoretical aspects on:
- Synthesis
- Structure and Characterization
- Mechanical Properties
- Electronic and Optical Properties
- Applications (tribological, catalysis, solar cells, etc.).
- …
We encourage young researchers for participation.

Our sponsor the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) has certain funds available for support of living and travel expenses.
