Graphenea announces the hiring of Dr. Oihana Txoperena, an expert in nanofabrication and 2D materials, nanocomposites, and functionalization, as Research Scientist. Dr. Txoperena will strengthen Graphenea’s research team, which prides itself in staying at the cutting edge of graphene science and technology.
Oihana Txoperena obtained her degree in Physics from the University of Basque Country in 2011, and her master in Nanoscience from the same university in 2012. After that, she completed her PhD in Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials at CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian). During her PhD, she studied the electronic and spin transport properties of mechanically exfoliated graphene and other 2D materials in nanodevices.
At Graphenea, where she has been engaged since April this year, she works as part of the established team to develop higher grade graphene materials.

Graphenea, a leading company in graphene production and a venture backed by Repsol and CDTI, was established in 2010, and has since grown to be one of the world's largest providers of graphene. The company is headquartered at the nanotechnology cluster CIC nanoGune in San Sebastian, Spain and Boston. Graphenea employs 15 people and exports graphene materials to more than 400 customers in 55 countries. The company has focused on constant improvement of graphene quality, becoming a supplier customers can rely on. Graphenea employs a team of skilled laboratory staff who have brought graphene film production techniques to a new level, offering the same high quality films on any substrate. Graphenea produces CVD graphene wafers up to 4 inches and graphene oxide in volumes up to 5 liters per package. Graphenea partners with large multinationals to develop custom graphene materials for their applications. Its research agility and ability to keep pace with the progress of graphene science and technology has allowed Graphenea to become the largest graphene supplier in the Graphene Flagship, a ten year project of the European Commission worth a billion euros. The company keeps a close relation with the world's leading scientists, regularly publishing scientific articles of the highest level.
