- 2D Crystals
The NUS Graphene Research Centre (GC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.
Aiming at being a world leader in innovative and emergent materials science, with strong ties to the industry and academia, the GC will directly contribute to a new generation of scientists and engineers who will have a permanent impact in the society and business enterprise landscape of Singapore, and worldwide.
NUS established the GC in 2010, under the leadership of Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto, with a start-up fund from NUS of S$ 40 Million, 1,000 m2 of laboratory space, and a state-of-the-art clean room facility of 800 m2. With these top-notch facilities, the GC will be one of the best equipped and advanced graphene research centers in the world.
In 2011, the GC was awarded two important grants: a S$10 Million CRP grant from NRF for the growth, study, and commercialization of two-dimensional crystals beyond graphene; GC is also participating on a S$ 50 Million CREATE grant from NRF, together with UC Berkeley and NTU, for the study of new photovoltaic systems based on two-dimensional crystals.
