Graphene was the world’s first two-dimensional material. Stronger than steel, more conductive than copper, flexible and transparent, graphene’s properties have captured the imagination of many since its isolation in 2004. Due to graphene’s diverse properties, it lends itself to a multitude of applications from composites and coatings, water filtration, sensors, electronics and biomedical applications. Graphene has […]
Applications 17th June 2019
Teams will compete to develop and prototype innovative product ideas using conductive graphene inks in the world’s first Graphene Hackathon. Saturday 16 and Sunday, 17 November 2019 the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) a purpose-built facility which aims to nurture Manchester’s growing community of graphene companies and scientists will open its doors for a weekend […]
