Gnanomat stated that its manufacturing process technology offers the possibility to generate a broad range of different advanced materials for use in different industrial applications. Further nanomaterials will, in the following months, be added to supply both research and industrial customers. These products will allow the Company's clients to perform preliminary tests and open the possibility to co-develop advanced materials that meet their technical demands. Gnanomat products formulation and process have been designed for supply at industrial quantities.

G2O Water Technologies expands following NPIF investment

G2O Water Technologies (G2O) has announced an expansion into a new laboratory at Liverpool City Region’s Sci-Tech Daresbury following a £600,000 investment, including £320,000 of funding from NPIF – Maven Equity Finance, managed by Maven and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

Headquartered in Manchester, the G2O uses graphene-based coatings technology to provide high quality and cost-effective solutions to a broad range of filtration applications. G2O’s technology is used for the treatment of water waste across multiple markets, including oil, gas and industrial.

New twist on graphene to boost optoelectronics

Researchers at University of California Berkeley, Washington University in St. Louis and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have stacked two sheets of graphene on top of each other and twisted them, which resulted in the conversion of a common linear material into one with nonlinear optical capabilities. This could prove useful for various everyday technologies — from spectroscopy and material analysis to communications and computing.

In the study of optics, scientists distinguish between linear and nonlinear materials. Most materials, including sheets of graphene, are linear. If you shine red light at a sheet of graphene, the photons will either be absorbed or scattered, but in any case - they will remain red.

The first International Graphene Awards winners are announced

The International Graphene Awards (IGA) was initiated by the Chinese Graphene Industry Association (CGIA) in collaboration with 50 graphene experts from all over the world.

In 2020 the IGA committee offered 5 different awards: for best graphene products, best graphene firm, industry promotion, industry demonstration and honorary award for the most contribution people in graphene industry.

AMD wins Future Leaders Fellowship award with leading Surrey researcher

Advanced Material Development logoAMD recently announced its success, in conjunction with Dr. Izabela Jurewicz from the University of Surrey, in the offer of an award from UKRI’s Future Leaders Fellowship (FLF) fund. This £1.6 million award is built around the work of Dr. Jurewicz at the University of Surrey in the field of graphene (and other 2D materials) within photonic crystals, where she focuses on optical color changes in the presence of different stimulants such as gases, radiation and more. The award will push her research forward and sponsor the transition into industry.

On completion of the award contract, Dr. Jurewicz will move to a full-time position with AMD at its main site on the Surrey Research Park, whilst maintaining full access to the laboratories at Surrey. She will also provide support and oversight to the established team at the University of Sussex under Professor Alan Dalton. AMD is one of the first commercial companies to receive such an award in partnership with a leading academic.
