Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Polymer
  • Laser

His main research concerns Carbon nanotube, Polymer, Nanotube, Composite material and Nanotechnology. His study in Carbon nanotube is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Composite number and Raman spectroscopy. His Polymer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Crystal growth and Electroluminescence.

His research in Nanotube focuses on subjects like Ultimate tensile strength, which are connected to Toughness. His study looks at the relationship between Nanotechnology and topics such as Nonlinear optics, which overlap with Nonlinear optical. Werner J. Blau usually deals with Optical properties of carbon nanotubes and limits it to topics linked to Laser and Optoelectronics.

His most cited work include:

  • Small but strong: A review of the mechanical properties of carbon nanotube–polymer composites (3101 citations)
  • Silver Nanowire Networks as Flexible, Transparent, Conducting Films: Extremely High DC to Optical Conductivity Ratios (1260 citations)
  • Experimental observation of scaling laws for alternating current and direct current conductivity in polymer-carbon nanotube composite thin films (658 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Carbon nanotube, Polymer, Optoelectronics, Optics and Laser. His Carbon nanotube study falls within the topics of Nanotechnology, Composite material and Chemical engineering.
