Andrea C. Ferrari is Professor of Nanotechnology at the University of Cambridge. He is the founding director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre and of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene technology. He is the chair of the Management Panel and the Science and Technology Officer of the EU Graphene Flaghip
Nanomaterials growth, modelling, characterization, and devices. In particular, graphene, nanotubes, diamond-like carbon, and nanowires for applications in electronics and photonics.
The mission of the Cambridge Graphene Centre is to investigate the science and technology of graphene, carbon allotropes, layered crystals and hybrid nanomaterials. This engineering innovation centre allows our partners to meet, and effectively establish joint industrial-academic activities to promote innovative and adventurous research with an emphasis on applications. The over £30M facilities and equipment have been selected to promote alignment with industry
Available equipment and techniques:
The Cambridge Graphene Centre, hosted in new bespoke £12.9M building, has over £10M worth of state of the art equipment and facilities covering all aspects of science and technology of graphene and related materials, with a particular focus on development of solutions and inks, printed and flexible optoelectronics, photonics, high frequency electronics and spectroscopy.
