Eliott Higgins, a PhD student in the School of Natural Sciences discusses his recently published research paper and what it means for the future of two-dimensional materials. Graphene is the world’s first two-dimensional material. Many more time stronger than steel, more conductive than copper and a million times thinner than a human hair, no other […]
National Graphene Institute 15th March 2019
It’s been four years since the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at The University of Manchester officially opened its doors. Since then it has welcomed visitors from across the globe including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and President Xi Jingping of the People’s Republic of China. It has also been at the forefront of graphene […]
National Graphene Institute 8th March 2019
Following up the #WomenInGraphene conference hosted at the National Graphene Institute funded by the Graphene Flagship last month, I took the opportunity to interview two female graphene researchers, Professor Sarah Haigh and PhD candidate Clara Skuse, to talk about their perceptions of gender equality in their field of research. With graphene research verging on the fields […]
