The new Cambridge Graphene centre will be funded by a £12 million Government grant and £13 million from industry. Experts in Cambridge are delighted at the development.
Graphene's potential is beyond doubt, but much more research is needed if we are to develop it to a point where it proves of benefit to society as a whole.
"The pioneering work of Cambridge engineers and scientists in fields such as carbon nanotechnology and flexible electronics, coupled with our record working with industry and launching spin-out firms based on our research, means that we are in a unique position to take graphene to that next level."
We are targeting applications and manufacturing processes, and broadening research to other two-dimensional materials and hybrid systems. The integration of these new materials could bring a new dimension to future technologies, creating faster, thinner, stronger, more flexible broadband devices."
