From November 25 to November 30, Graphenea was attending the Material Research Society (MRS) Fall Meeting in Boston. This meeting intend to gather the top scientists and companies working for better materials.
The MRS was founded in 1973 and is an organization opened to academia, industry and government material researchers. The Society promotes all kind of actions related to this interdisciplinary field. Members of the Society help to communicate about the progress of material science. Today, 16,000 members are registered over more than 70 countries. The Society is different from that of single discipline professional societies because it encourages communication and technical information exchange across the various fields of science affecting materials.
In addition to exchange within the Society by the mean of publications and symposium proceedings (MRS Bulletin and Journal of Material Research), MRS sponsors two major annual Meetings offering approximately 95 topical symposia. The Society push forward the interaction among professionals and students through University Chapters.
Symposium on Carbon Nanomaterial
This year, Graphenea have been sponsoring the Symposium on Carbon Nanomaterial. A large amount of presentations were made to describe the progress in graphene research. Among those, Graphenea have been particularly interested in CVD graphene :
- Controlling Orientation, Edge Geometry and Thickness of High Quality Large-area CVD Graphene - Presented by Nicole Grobert from Department of Materials, University of Oxford
- Combinatorial Methods for Wafer-scale CVD Graphene Synthesis - Presented by Jeremy Cheng from Intermolecular Inc. (http://www.intermolecular.com), San Jose, California, USA
- Gas Transport Control in Graphene Growth by Chemical Vapor Deposition on Copper Foil - Presented by Seong-Yong Cho from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea
- Activation Energy Paths for Graphene Nucleation and Growth on Cu - Presented by Cecilia Mattevi from Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom
- Study on Interface between Graphene Domains Grown by Ambient-pressure CVD - Presented by Yui Ogawa from Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan
- Optical and Electrical Characterization of CVD Graphene Transferred to SiO2/Si Substrates for Biosensor Applications - Presented by Flavio Plentz from Physics, UFMG, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
- Correlation of Carrier Diffusion and Defect Structure in CVD-grown Graphene - Presented by Caitlin Rochford from Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
As you know, Graphenea is deeply involved in research and development of graphene, as well as industrial applications. Since most commercial application requires high quality and high reproducibility, we produce Chemical Vapor Deposited Graphene.
