About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 27 September 2022

Carbon nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, have been successfully utilized in electronics, photonics, energy storage, thermal management, composites, and coatings applications. Although laboratory-scale results demonstrate the high potential of carbon nanomaterials, the lack of their high-quality products at competitive prices is a barrier to their commercial and industrial uses. Recently, the production techniques of carbon nanomaterials have witnessed remarkable developments using roll-to-roll and large-scale batch chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes that operate in a relatively high-temperature environment. Thermal characterizations of substrates and CVD chambers are necessary to enhance the throughput of carbon nanomaterials because the temperature affects their quality and uniformity.

This collection aims to advance the knowledge of heat transfer during large-scale deposition of carbon nanomaterials. Fundamental analysis of heat transfer in the substrates and CVD chambers is vital when carbon nanomaterials are deposited on large-area substrates in batches or continuously using roll-to-roll setups. Renewed routes for controlled temperature distribution in the substrates with low-energy input of CVD systems could allow efficient manufacturing of carbon nanomaterials at high quality, uniformity, and throughput.

This Research Topic seeks recent advancements in the thermal engineering and optimization of carbon nanomaterials deposition in CVD systems. We welcome original research and review articles covering the following themes:
1. Heat transfer analysis of roll-to-roll and large-scale batch CVD systems;
2. Analytical and numerical models of heat transfer processes in CVD systems;
3. Thermal optimization and design using statistical methods;
4. Thermal characterizations and modeling of gas-phase heat transfer in CVD systems;
5. In situ measurement techniques of the gas and substrate temperatures;
6. Direct synthesis of carbon nanomaterials at low temperatures;
7. Other topics related to thermal engineering for scalable manufacturing of carbon nanomaterials.

Keywords: Heat transfer, Thermal engineering, optimization, Scalability, Production, Manufacturing, Carbon nanomaterials, Graphene, Carbon nanotubes


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
