Scientists at The University of Manchester have ‘re-discovered’ a material, which could make the construction of 2D van der Waals heterostructures easier to build.
A city built on science and industry
Manchester is the home of graphene, where Rutherford split the atom and where Turing created the first programmable computer. It is a city which has grown from world-changing scientific creativity and discovery.
Graphene is the world’s first two-dimensional material which is set to revolutionise our everyday lives. The National Graphene Institute is the first step in creating the vision of a Graphene City in Manchester.
