Cambridge Graphene Centre

Research Centre on Graphene, Layered Crystals and Hybrid Nanomaterials

Studying at Cambridge

 

Research Areas

 

  • Production of graphene and related materials (GRMs). We produce GRMs using differnt methods of exfoliation and growth. We use GRMs to develop new composites, heterostructures, ink formulations, functionalisation, and much more.
  • Micro and nanofabrication. We carry out techniques such as lithography, thin film deposition, etching, coating, imprinting, bioprinting, laser, extrusion, and molding.
  • Photonics and Optoelectronics. We develop devices such as modulators, lasers and sources, broadband detectors, and waveguides.
  • Materials and device characterisation. We perform materials and device characterisation using PL/EL and Raman spectroscopy.
  • Electronics. We develop new antennas, terahertz devices, MW, quantum devices and bioelectronics.
  • Sensors. We produce and develop new sensors based on GRMs for physical, optical, chemical and environmental measurements, as well as radiofrequency detection.
  • Energy. We work on energy harvesting and storage developing solar cells, batteries, supercapacitors, assembling coin and pouch cells. We also characterise and test all this devices.
