About this event

Graphene is the thinnest material in nature, composed of only a single layer of carbon atoms. It has extraordinary physical, electrical and optical properties that scientists are only just beginning to reveal and understand.

In this joint talk with the Portsmouth and District Physical Society, David Horsell will guide you through some of the recent discoveries made about graphene and its wide-ranging potential applications, from next-generation computers to ultrasensitive biosensors.

David Horsell is a Lecturer in Physics at the University of Exeter. He has worked for 14 years on measurements of electrical conduction in nano-scale devices. For the last 6 years he has been studying the origins of conduction in graphene, a material in which the carriers behave in unusual ways. Currently he and his group are exploring the physics behind the interaction between graphene and biomolecules, reactive chemicals and gases to understand the properties that make graphene such a great material for sensing applications.
