Cambridge Graphene Centre

Research Centre on Graphene, Layered Crystals and Hybrid Nanomaterials

Studying at Cambridge

 

Ink Lab

The Ink lab includes state-of-the-art printing (inkjet, gravure, flexo, screen, 3D) and coating (spray, blade) techniques as well as equipment for advanced ink characterization.

 

For access to the lab, or for any general training, please contact the lab leader Dr Panagiotis Karagiannidis, or their deputy Dr Stephen Hodge For training on any of the equipment, please contact the Principal User or their deputy for the listed equipment.

While there is a range of devices in the Ink Laboratory, several of them require booking before use. The booking system can be found here.
