Abstract : The research agenda was highly impactful on understanding the fundamental radiation response of nanocarbon materials (CNTs and graphene) and the nanoscale electronic devices comprising them. The primary outcome of this program, determined using both theory and experiment, has been a complete understanding of the mechanisms of radiation damage in carbon nanotubes as a function of their chirality-dependent effects (i.e., influence of electronic-type, diameter, etc.), and an understanding of the defect types created for both ionizing and non-ionizing particles under exposure to high total ionization and displacement damage doses.
