Graphene reduces wear of alumina

Ceramics, hard crystalline solids, have been utilized by mankind for thousands of years, with earliest applications in pottery. In modern times, new ceramic materials were developed for use in advanced ceramic engineering, for example as semiconductors. One popular ceramic is alumina, an oxide of the metal aluminium.

Alumina has for a long time been used in biomedical applications such as load-bearing hip prostheses and dental implants, due to its high resistance to corrosion, low…

PhD scholarship in Theoretical Nanotechnology - Technical University of Denmark

The rapid development in nanofabrication techniques in recent years has made it realistic to nanostructure graphene to tailor its properties for specific applications. One particular way to  nanostructure graphene is to dope it selectively: experiments have shown that under certain conditions substitutional doping occurs very asymmetrically with regard to the two sublattices which form the graphene lattice.  This opens many new ways to fine tune graphene’s electronic transport…

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
