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.
The key to realising the potential of graphene is partnership.
At 7,825 square metres with £13m of state-of-the-art equipment the National Graphene Institute (NGI) is the home for this collaboration. The facilities enable academics and their industrial partners to work side-by-side on new and exciting applications.
Industry has a vital role to play in how the world's first 2D material will be utilised. Research is nothing without development.
A big space for big ideas
The NGI has 1,500m² of class 100 and 1000 cleanrooms, which have an atmosphere more than a million times purer than air and the latest technology for nanoscale and characterisation projects.
