Manchester’s NGI to host imaging and 2D materials events

Scientists from the 2D materials community at The University of Manchester are set to host a series of events.

Manchester’s National Graphene Institute (NGI) will host the Raman Imaging Applied to Low-dimensional and Other Advanced Materials and the Symposium on Perspectives of Raman Imaging in Materials Research on November 16 and 17.

The event is being organised by Dr Aravind Vijayaraghavan and for more information and to register visit the dedicated website.

The NGI is also set to host a UK-China workshop entitled Grand Challenges and Solutions in 2D Materials Science and Technologies on January 24-26, 2018.

The event, which aims to promote bilateral collaborations, is being organised by Professor Vladimir Falko, Director of the NGI, and Sir Konstantin Novoselov.

Professor Falko explained: “Having witnessed the rapid expansion of graphene and 2D materials science and technologies we recognise the potential for finding solutions to global challenges faced by the nations around the world, including energy efficiency, reduction of pollution and green transport infrastructure, as well as new healthcare products.

“The upcoming workshop will bring together the key academic players in the research and commercialisation of graphene and graphene-like 2D materials in both the UK and China, with a view to promote bilateral collaborations and accelerate scientific progress towards developing the new materials base for electronics, optoelectronics and photonics; sensors, flexible and printable electronics; mobile energy systems; and 2DM-enhanced composite materials.”
