Brief Bio:
Professor Rao's laboratory at Clemson University focuses its research primarily on the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes. We are dedicated to understanding the properties and applications of single-wall and multi-wall carbon nanotubes. Other research topics include characterization of semiconducting nanobelts, nanowires and thermoelectric materials. Raman scattering techniques combined with optimized growth conditions for arc, CVD, and laser vaporization serve as our tools for exploring the properties of these nanomaterials.
