Michael De Volder, Engineering Department - IfM

Department A-Z


Welcome to Michael De Volder's webpage on nanomanufacturing. Our activities focus on the development of technologies to structure nanoparticles such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, and metal oxide nanocrystals into well defined superstructures. These may find application in sensors, electronics, catalysis, energy storage, water purification, and smart materials.
