8th International Workshop on Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality of Nanotubes (MSIN14)
June 1, 2014
Stephen B. Cronin
This satellite symposium is dedicated to the metrology, standardization and industrial quality of carbon nanotubes and related materials. Adoption of a new material in industry requires consistency and quality that can only be assured by international standards of measurement. The research community also benefits from standard measurement practices and quality in carbon nanotubes as it facilitates inter-laboratory comparisons of research results. Development of protocols for the definition of sample parameters like composition, purity, stability, homogeneity, dispersability, structural metrics are keys for both research and applications of nanotubes and graphene. The MSIN13 workshop strives to bring together the international stakeholders in measurement science and standardization to build consensus on best measurement practices to assure consistency and quality in the field of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
