Graphene Conference: From Research to Applications

National Physical Laboratory

An impressive range of recent breakthroughs in understanding graphene properties has raised expectations for graphene to revolutionise technology by offering faster, smaller, lighter, more flexible electronic devices, with new functionalities. Commercial applications of graphene, ranging from transistors to touchscreen displays, are being pursued by a growing number of companies from start-ups to recognised technology leaders. Metrology has become one of the early adopters of this new revolutionary material and a key enabler of the progress from laboratory to industry.

This conference will review some of the new concepts of graphene electronics and progress in understanding graphene physics, technology and metrology.

Talks will be given by key international experts from industry and academia, including members of ConceptGraphene. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit various metrology laboratories at NPL.
