Invitation to a public Lecture given by Professor Sir Konstantin Novoselov, Hon FInstP, Joint 2010 Nobel prize-winner “for ground-breaking experiments regarding the material graphene.
Graphene: Materials in the Flatland: Why all the fuss? What’s the matter?
Date: Thursday 28 November 2013
Venue: Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London, W1B 1NT
Time: 18.30 (registration from 18.00)
A lot of excitement and publicity has surrounded the discovery of
graphene – the thinnest and strongest material ever obtained. It is also
a million times more conductive than copper, impermeable to any gases,
optically transparent, very elastic, flexible and an extremely good
conductor of heat.
Furthermore, over the last few years novel methods of mass production of graphene have appeared, making the prospect of it being used in everyday applications very promising. It is not surprising that industry is excited by graphene’s technological potential.
Prof. Sir Konstantin Novoselov, recipient of one of IOP’s highest awards, Honorary Fellowship, will talk about the work that led to the discovery of graphene, what makes it so special, its current applications and what the future holds for this remarkable material.
The lecture is free to attend and is open to all, physicists and non-physicists alike. Places are limited, so anyone wishing to attend, please register online here.
