The new still emerging field of nanomechanics is, probably, one of the simplest parts in the conceptual foundation of nanoscale sciences and nanotechnology.

A first nationally distributed short course “Mechanics of Carbon Nanotubes” has been presented at the Annual ASME Congress in 2001 by Dr. Vasyl Michael Harik, then a Senior Staff Scientist at the ICASE Institute at the NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA. In 2011, exactly ten years after the first presentation of that short course, a new book with the same title "Mechanics of Carbon Nanotubes" has been published by a 2004 NASA spin-off, Nanodesigns Consulting of Newark, DE.

thanks for this information

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
