Modelling Charge and Heat Transport in 2D-materials based Composites (MECHANIC)
Forskningsprojekt , 2017 – 2019

Polymer-composites based on Graphene and related materials (GRM), e.g. thermoplastics and conductive flexible materials, hold promise for several European industrial areas including aerospace and automotive industries where GRM are used in coating of batteries and cables, de-icing etc.

The composites of most interest comprise structurally complex membranes of Graphene Oxide (GO) and reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO). These are disordered on multiple length scales and incorporate local structural defects, and large amounts of functional groups. To date partners in the Flagship Core consortium (CNR/WP14) and companies (AVANZARE/WP15) lack knowledge to link measurements of electrical and thermalconductivities to the complex material morphology. For this reason, we target modelling of charge and heat transport in highly disordered (realistic) GO/rGO thin films, as they appear in composites.
