Publications and invited conference contributions

Research on graphene requires a wide range of expertise including chemical synthesis, electron microscopy, surface physics and theoretical modelling. Since 2007, researchers from Physics, Chemistry and Engineering science at Uppsala university are active in the graphene field. The initiative has been awarded University support 2008-2010 within the Quality and Renewal program.
