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