Applications 20th November 2019
Last weekend (16-17th of November) saw ten teams of multi-disciplinary backgrounds, from across the UK and Europe, work through the night to design, prototype and pitch a product incorporating conductive graphene inks. Teams would print, wire and code their ideas into reality over the 24-hour long competition hosted at the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC). […]
Applications 31st October 2019
The University of Manchester may have isolated the two-dimensional material but new and exciting developments continue to happen right here on campus. With the completion of the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre at the end of 2018, the University has the capability to quickly take a potential graphene application from the research lab to a proof […]
Applications 10th October 2019
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 […]
