Description of the organisation
The Polytechnic University of Turin is an Engineering University based in Turin. Established in 1859, it is Italy’s oldest Technical University. The research group that takes part in this project (Carbongroup) is operating in the field of carbon materials. It has developed strong expertise in the growth and manipulation of carbon nanotubes and carbon based nanomaterials. Work Team is composed by an Associated Professor, three PostDocs (1 Engineer, 1 Physicist, 1 Chemist) and a Phd Student. Here, there are two chemical vapour deposition systems (CVD) for nanotube growth and all the necessary equipments for the safe use and storage of carbon nanotubes/nanomaterials according to the latest international regulations.
Its expertise includes other that the growth and manipulation of the carbon based materials, their characterization. Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (Fe-SEM) equipped with EDX system, X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), μRaman spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) are only some of the direct characterization system available from the research group.
POLITO main role is to develop and implement appropriate surface treatments of carbon fibers aimed to improve carbon fibers dispersibility and to comprehensively characterize the carbon fibers produced by FIBRALSPEC partners.
POLITO main tasks will be:
- Develop and optimize surface treatments of carbon fibers
- Investigate new ecofriendly precursors
- Collaborate with NTUA in the development of the carbon fibers production process
