Description

Join us in celebrating 10 years of graphene production with our free public talk.

In 2008, Professors Jonathan Coleman and Valeria Nicolosi, Investigators in AMBER and Trinity’s Schools of Physics and Chemistry respectively, published a paper in Nature Nanotechnology describing a new method to produce defect-free graphene nanosheets. Graphene is a single atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms and has extraordinary properties from strength 200 times that of steel, to conductivity, permeability and flexibility. These developments have led to breakthroughs in a number of applications areas, notably energy storage devices and electronics.

Find out more about what graphene could enable, from sensors to replacing plastics. Our two key world-renowned researchers, Professors Coleman and Nicolosi will each give a 20-minute public talk about their research at the conclusion of their 10th anniversary one-day academic workshop in Trinity. This talk does not require a background in science, it is for anybody with a curiosity about the materials of the future! There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience.

Prof Jonathan Coleman - Kitchen Physics: Nanoscience using household stuff

Prof Valeria Nicolosi - Nanomaterials to power our world.


Starts 6pm promptly.
