Enkeleda Dervishi

University of Arkansas, USA

I am currently a Research Assistant Professor with the Center for Integrative Nanotechnology Sciences, at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I received the B.S. degree in electronic and computer engineering and the Ph.D. degree in engineering science and systems from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2004 and 2009, respectively. My research involves synthesis and characterization of high-quality carbon nanotubes and graphene nanostructures and their applications in transparent conductive films. I have authored or coauthored more than 70 journal publications and numerous conference publications. Some of my research interests are in catalysis, synthesis of various carbon nanostructures, and their applications in photovoltaic devices and in the bi-nano area. The following are some of the research projects that I am involved in: (a) Synthesis, characterization and applications of novel nanostructure materials with an emphasis on carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles and graphene; (b) Synthesis of high quality and high yield carbon nanotubes and graphene nanosheets using Chemical Vapor Deposition; (c) Decoration of graphene with various nano-particles for applications such as solar cells and gas detection; (d) Development of various catalytic systems for an efficient growth of various carbon nanostructures; (e)Characterization of nanomaterials using a variety of advanced techniques including SEM, XPS, Raman Spectroscopy, TGA, DSC,etc.; (f) Design and development of transparent and conductive nano-composite films;
