CDT 30th November 2022
Postgraduate research students on the University’s Graphene NOWNANO CDT programme take part and demonstrate at science festivals, school visits and other public engagement events, to spread the word and inspire the next generation of graphene and 2D materials scientists. Outreach forms a key part of the programme and is a valuable way for research students […]
Collaborations 24th June 2022
A world-leading Manchester nanoscientist says we are about to embark on a fantastic journey into the brain – and predicts a breakthrough “decoder” that could help us better understand human pathology, perception, capacity and consciousness.
Applications 23rd March 2022
We caught up with one of the longest-term partners of Graphene@Manchester – Colloids – to talk about masterbatch: what it is, how it works and why graphene and related 2D materials are the key to a new era of multi-functional plastics.
Collaborations 15th October 2021
The National Graphene Institute’s Cleanrooms provide a unique environment for research with advanced materials. Find out more about the facility with Cleanroom Manager Fran and how you can benefit.
National Graphene Institute 9th December 2020
The 150-year-old mystery behind a natural phenomenon that is omnipresent in our world – and even helps children build sandcastles – has finally been solved by a team of scientists from The University of Manchester led by Nobel laureate and graphene pioneer Professor Sir Andre Geim.
Collaborations 6th December 2020
With the launch of Nobel Week 2020 (5-13 December), we take an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of graphene pioneers Professors Andre Geim and Konstantin (Kostya) Novoselov, who were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics a decade ago.
National Graphene Institute 17th November 2020
The NGI’s Dr Matthew Hamer, winner of the Scopus Early Career Research UK award for his work with 2D materials, tells us about his research.
National Graphene Institute 13th November 2020
A group of researchers led by Sir Andre Geim and Dr Alexey Berdyugin at The University of Manchester have discovered and characterised a new family of quasiparticles named ‘Brown-Zak fermions’ in graphene-based superlattices.

Aranza Carmona Orbezo has just finished her PhD, working with graphene in capacitor systems to desalinate sea water for human consumption. She tells us about her research, the challenges that 2020 has posed and her vision for future technology…
National Graphene Institute 12th August 2020
An international research team led by The University of Manchester has revealed a nanomaterial that mirrors the “magic angle” effect originally found in a complex man-made structure known as twisted bilayer graphene – a key area of study in physics in recent years.
