Laboratory for the synthesis of innovative nanostructures.
Research Interests
The Nessim laboratory at Bar-Ilan University (Israel) focuses on the synthesis of 1D and 2D nanostructures using state-of-the-art chemical vapor deposition (CVD) equipment. The scientific focus is to better understand the complex growth mechanisms of these nanostructures, to possibly functionalize them to tune their properties, and to integrate them into innovative devices.

What we do

We extensively collaborate with other groups in BIU, with other universities in Israel, with many groups in Italy (Politecnico di Milano, Sant'Anna di Pisa, U. Verona, U. Bergamo, Ca Foscari, etc.), and in the USA (Prof. Cary Pint, Vanderbilt) to do advanced characterizations of our nanomaterials and to integrate them into functional devices for electronic, mechanic, and energy applications.

CNTs synthesis using siliceous breccia as a catalyst source
August 31, 2019

In this work, siliceous breccia, a natural rock powder composed essentially of SiO2 α-quartz, has been employed directly as a catalyst without any chemical treatment for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) via chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
