Prof Novoselov has been an international scientific advisor to the NUS Centre for Advanced 2D Materials since 2015. He will be the first Nobel Laureate to join a Singapore university.
The man behind graphene, the revolutionary supermaterial
Prof Novoselov and Professor Sir Andre Geim were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010 for their ground-breaking achievements with the two-dimensional material graphene. Then 36, Prof Novoselov was the youngest Nobel Laureate in Physics since 1971 and the youngest overall since 1992.
The joint discovery of graphene by Prof Novoselov and Prof Geim not only led to the discovery of a new material that is the world’s most conductive, stretchable and strongest, it also opened up an entirely new area of multidisciplinary researchContinue Reading
