Andrey Banich

andreyAndrey is an MSc. student in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Tel Aviv University under supervision of Dr. Noa Lachman. His research is about ability to disperse various CNT’s filler in silicone rubber from an industrial approach. The main goal is to understand dispersion and conducting mechanism of different types of Carbon Nanotubes in silicone rubber matrix. Secondary goal – to create softer silicone rubber with same conducting abilities as Carbon Black filler.

 

 

Ksenia Friedman

KseniaMy name is Ksenia Friedman, I live in Tel Aviv. For the last 7 years I’ve been working in Intel as Process engineer in Lithography department. As a part of my job I am constantly working on technological problems characterization and solutions, new technology implementation and daily management of the production line.

I have a B.Sc. in Materials Engineering, which I completed at Ben-Gurion University. My Master’s Degree in Materials Engineering  I  am doing at Tel Aviv University, under the supervision of Dr. Noa Lachman. In my research I was looking for a partial mask- a material that will provide resistance for specific areas of VA-CNT forest during plasma functionalization process.  This project focuses on feasibility checking of TiO2 sol gel as a mask to prevent oxidation of VA-CNT forest.

 

Elnatan Liberman

אלנתן ליברמןElnatan is an M.Sc. student in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Tel Aviv University under supervision of Dr. Noa Lachman. Elnatan obtained his BSc. in Material Science and Engineering at Ben Gurion University in 2016 specializing in complex carbon fibers materials for race motor cars chassis. He is current research focuses on supercapacitor which used aligned carbon nanotubes (A-CNT) as an electrodes.

Lev Rubinsky

לב רובינסקיLev is an M.Sc student in the Department of Material Science and Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Noa Lachman. Lev received his B.Sc (2016) in Advanced Materials Engineering from Azrieli College of Engineering in Jerusalem, specializing in microelectronics and semiconductors. Lev has done his diploma project in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in the field 3-D printing of shape-memory polymers with a magnetic/thermal switch. Lev’s research is about fabrication and characterization of alumina/VA-CNT nanocomposites.

Dr. Noa Lachman

lechman-noaDr. Noa Lachman is a new member in the department of materials science and engineering, previously a postdoctoral Associate at the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. She received a B.S. (2003) in Chemistry and Physics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, and completed her Ph.D. work (2010) at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in the department of Materials and Interfaces. Her research with Prof. Wardle at MIT focused on tailoring and imaging of VA-CNT based composites for various applications, including energy storage and multi-functional structure materials. Dr. Lachman uses experimental techniques to obtain knowledge of nano-structure effect on mechanical and functional properties of these new materials, and she aims to develop a structure-function dataset which will enable the design of new materials with improved efficiency and performance. Dr. Lachman has authored and co-authored 20 journal articles, which have been cited together more than 500 times.
