Cambridge Graphene Centre

Research Centre on Graphene, Layered Crystals and Hybrid Nanomaterials

A warm welcome from the Cambridge Graphene Centre's Research Facilities team

We provide open access to our state-of-the-art R&D equipment worth over £30M.

Facilities are organised in multiple laboratories and cleanrooms (class 100 and 1000). See the full list in the drop-down menu.

CGC hosts two Royce Institute Laboratories, including E-Beam Lithography and High-Frequency Antennae Characterisation.

Each laboratory/cleanroom has a lab leader and a deputy leader who look after the equipment and operations. 

Assessing risk in experiments in our labs and cleanroom is an important step in making sure you work in a safe environment. Prior to doing experiments all users need to cover their work in full with relevant Risk Assessments and COSHHs. 

For your reference, a blank Risk Assessment can be downloaded here, and a COSHH form can be downloaded here. The University Risk Assessment Guide is essential if you have never done this before. If you wish to renew a Risk Assessment, please use the RA Review Form.

Any equipment will require booking before use, and the booking system can be found here.
