The IMN group are specialists in computer modelling - in this case, of atomic defects and damage in the surface of the carbon nanotubes caused by the plasma treatment. What is the plasma doing to the nanotube surface, and do the metal nanoparticles stick to the damaged sections of tube? It`s up to the IMN guys to find out...
Meanwhile their other role is to work closely with the Vega Science Trust to develop the nano2hybrids website, help with producing the documentaries, contact the press, etc. It`s a steep learning curve! Links To Other Information:Nano2hybrids Site
