Charging your smartphone less frequently thanks to carbon nanotubes


About the research

Is the battery of your smartphone draining quickly? Charlotte Vets (UAntwerp) wants to ensure that our smartphone battery lasts longer. How? By focusing on new, tiny components that are up to 1,000 times smaller than a hair: carbon nanotubes.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity, Charlotte Vets always wanted to know everything down to the smallest detail. That is why she studied nanosciences and nanotechnology in order to study materials right down to the smallest level and thus explain all kinds of physical phenomena. In her doctoral thesis she focuses on carbon nanotubes, tubes of which the properties at the nanoscale can influence our electronics at the macro scale.
