Cambridge Graphene Centre

Research Centre on Graphene, Layered Crystals and Hybrid Nanomaterials

Studying at Cambridge


Centre for Doctoral Training

The EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Centre on Graphene Technology aims to build a world-class cohort of young scientists as next generation high tech entrepreneurs and technology leaders. The CDT will operate in a 1+3 structure, with an MRes in the first year, followed by a 3-year PhD.

The Graphene CDT students will receive multidisciplinary training through handpicked taught courses in technology and short courses in business and entrepreneurship, a wide range of research skills training, academic and industrial short projects, public outreach and tailored personal development sessions. The cohort, with a varied undergraduate background, will spend a significant amount of time working together in their first year and with research groups from across the university departments such as Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science & Metallurgy and Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology. The students will also closely interact with the leading academic and industrial researchers participating in the Graphene Flagship programme.

The application oriented research theme of the CDT cover the following areas in Photonics, (Opto)electronics, Energy, Communications and Sensing:

  • Production, Processing and Deposition of Functional Nanomaterials
  • Advanced Materials Modeling, Characterization Techniques
  • Device Design, Fabrication and Integration
  • Application Specific Device Characterization and Optimization Strategies
