Committee Expertise


Knowledge and understanding of all forms of carbon science, engineering and technology including: 

  • Natural carbons (geological and extraterrestrial carbons)
  • Carbons grown or deposited from gas phase and plasmas (nanocarbons, diamonds, templated carbons...)
  • Carbons from “soft” precursors (pitches, polymers), including their primary and secondary carbonisation, graphitisation
  • Energy storage and conversion
    Carbon-based composites, nanocomposites, and components (fibres, nanotubes, matrices,…) for mechanical properties (thermo- structural, tribological…)
  • Chemical and physical modifications: functionalisation, doping, intercalation, exfoliation, solid state transformations
  • Liquid and gas storage, adsorption (and environmental uses)
  • Electronic, optical, opto-electronic properties and applications (field emission, sensors, circuitry,…)
  • Nuclear and solar applications, thermal management
  • Carbons related to biology, toxicity, and health
  • Advances in processing, characterisation, and modelling
