Materials and applications
Metal substitution in electrical wires by materials with high conductivity like carbon nanotubes (CNT) is interesting for short term applications in avionic and space thanks to the huge benefit of such wiring in term of mass. Indeed such wires will significantly improve the energy consumption of planes for example. Individual performances of CNTs can be better than the copper one.…Continue

Towards new methods for investigating soft and soft-hard hybrid materials in the electron microscope
Understanding and controlling materials stability under the irradiation of an electron beam is one of the big challenges in electron microscopy. Beam damage thresholds have been studied in many hard and biological materials, but there are several classes of soft and soft-hard hybrid materials which have barely been investigated up until now. Beam effects are not…Continue
