Graphene was isolated in 2004 at The University of Manchester by Professors Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov. Their ground-breaking experiments with the material won them the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010. Graphene is many more times stronger than steel, more conductive than copper, transparent, flexible and one millions times thinner than a human hair. Potential applications include: sensors, electronics, membranes, composites and coatings, energy and energy storage devices and biomedicine.

For Idea of North, the National Graphene Institute has provided a unique collection of graphene samples and formats, including–A5 graphene printed designs, a graphene rubber composite, a graphene polyproplyene composite, and graphene ink coated on copper.
