graphene ExpoGraphene Expo is the UK's first dedicated event to graphene technology

A newly discovered isolated material with remarkable properties, the future potential of graphene and its uses are unlimited!

This exhibition, co-located with Photonex Europe, will feature companies and organisations at the forefront of high-tech graphene technology.

The exhibition will be a mix of academic organisations and commercial companies. Academic organisations will be wanting to meet with companies who can assist them in their research, they will have on show prototype devices and systems. Companies will be demonstrating their skills in areas such as systems for deposition, materials and instruments for testing and measuring graphene properties.


Graphene for photonic and optoelectronic applications

Meet with companies already utilising graphene in their products, for example graphene-CMOS sensors.

What makes graphene so special?

The discovery of graphene is one of the greatest of our generation and is seen as a highly promising material for the development of next generation electronics. Now with new applications being established utilising this unique 2D material, it is now considered possible that the market that exists today will into a £B industry over the next 20 to 40 years.

There is considerable interest from both academia and industry in its potential with properties such as broad wavelength transparency, high electrical and thermal conductivity (at room temperature). The first applications for graphene already commercially exploited are inks and coatings and graphene is already being used as an alternative to silicon in the manufacture of field effect transistors in humidity, pressure and sensors.

Graphene-based batteries have huge potential, R&D is intensive and will hopefully yield results in the future. Graphene has exceptional properties when it comes to protecting metal surfaces such as those used in plasmonics.

Graphene deposition on silicon is one important challenge ahead for photonic and optoelectronic applications!
