Graphene inks take first prize in Engineering Department Photography Competition

last modified Jan 31, 2017 05:21 PM
James Macleod, Process Technician at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, has won first prize in the Department of Engineering's annual Photography Competition.

The winning image features graphene ink being processed in alcohol in the CGC microfluidiser, where graphite is ripped apart into graphene by shear forces. Shimmering black swirls show graphene in different stages of exfoliation as it is processed up to 70 times.His prize is a pair of Victory 8x42SF binoculars, from the competition sponsors, ZEISS.
