PEGASUS - Plasma Enabled and Graphene Allowed Synthesis of Unique nanoStructures
On December 18th, project PEGASUS launched its new website, along with the announcement of the work plan for the new year to come. Elena Tatarova, the project's coordinator, gave a speech, acknowledging all the collaborators that made this challenge a reality, and thanks to whom it is possible to reach for further scientific progress.
The project PEGASUS embodies plasmas driven controllable design of matter at atomic scale level. To this end, PEGASUS ultimate goal is to create a highly efficient, catalyst/harmful-free novel plasma method along with a proof-of-concept PEGASUS device for a large-scale N-graphene direct synthesis, as well as N-graphene/metal oxides nanocomposites and unique vertical N-graphene arrays grown on metal substrates.
The synergy between plasma physics and mechanical, electrochemical and hi-tech engineering expertise will be the driving force boosting the innovative approach pursued by this project. Internationally recognized scientists will contribute to this interdisciplinary project, triggering the commercialization of novel materials.
From now on, you can check all of PEGASUS development in their new website, at ipfn.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pegasus.
