NPL joines Manchester in race to commercialise graphene



The University of Manchester has signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to help accelerate the commercialisation of 'wonder material' graphene.

The agreement will see the two organisations work together on the development of graphene metrology, characterisation and standards vital to industry uptake, with a view to establishing a joint Centre of Excellence. 

James Baker, business director of the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, said: "With this new partnership, the University of Manchester and NPL are showing joint determination to lead the way in graphene applications. 

"The metrology expertise based at NPL, paired with the world class academics, state of the art equipment and facilities at the UoM and NGI allows for viable graphene based products to come to the marketplace sooner."
