A new understanding of the physics of conductive materials has been uncovered by scientists observing the unusual movement of electrons in graphene.
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.
