PhD position: Structural characterization of nanoporous carbons by x-ray scattering methods

Different types of sp2-based carbon materials are widely used in several industrial fields like activated carbons in filters, carbide-derived carbons in supercapacitors or pitch-based carbons as electrodes. These carbon materials differ in their microstructure leading to distinct macroscopic properties like electrical conductivity or stiffness. Therefore, a precise characterization of the carbon microstructure on the nanometer scale is essential to correlate it with the materials'…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
