Singapore DPM isolates graphene at GRC

DPM Teo Chee Hean exfoliating graphene at GRC

On Jun 11, Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Teo Chee Hean, honoured the Graphene Research Centre with a visit to our recently operational Micro and Nano-Fabrication Facility.

During his visit, Mr. Teo had the opportunity to learn first hand the potential of graphene and graphene-based technologies, and interacted with some of our researchers and students.

The highlight of the afternoon was when Mr. Teo himself dressed up and went to one of our clean rooms to learn and isolate graphene, under the guidance of 2010 Physics Nobel laureate Konstantin Novoselov. No wonder then that Mr. Teo got a graphene flake right in the first try!
