The Cambridge Graphene Centre is recognised as the heart of a rapidly developing graphene value chain in Charles Cotton and Kate Kirk’s book ‘The Cambridge Phenomenon: Global Impact."

Ultrahigh sensitivity graphene infrared detectors for imaging and spectroscopy

Jan 31, 2017

Researchers at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, in a collaboration including Emberion, have developed a novel graphene-based infrared (IR) detector with record high sensitivity for thermal detection. This result paves the way for high-performance IR imaging and spectroscopy.

Versarien acquires majority stake in University of Cambridge spin-out Cambridge Graphene

A majority stake in Cambridge Graphene Ltd., a spin-out company from the University of Cambridge, has been acquired by Versarien plc.

Graphene’s sleeping superconductivity awakens

Jan 19, 2017

Scientists have believed that graphene may have the innate ability to superconduct since graphene was isolated in 2004. Now Cambridge researchers have found a way to activate that previously dormant potential.
