58th Cherwell Simon Lecture 2018
‘Random Walk to Graphene’
Prof Sir Andre Geim - University of Manchester

11 May - 16:30 - Martin Wood Complex

Graphene – a single plane of carbon atoms – is probably the simplest material one can imagine. On the other hand, graphene has acquired so many superlatives to its name that it is often called a wonder material.
I will discuss how this research started and, then, try to explain why graphene attracts so much attention these days.
