£1.7M Grant for Graphene Research
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a £1.7M Advanced Grant Graphene and Beyond to Vladimir Falko, Distinguished Professor in the Physics Department.
These Advanced Grants enable "exceptional established research leaders to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains".
The funding will support Professor Falko and Lancaster condensed matter theorists Evgeni Burovski, Vadim Cheianov, Neil Drummond and Ed McCann in fundamental research in graphene (one- or two-atom thin layer of carbon), in searching for functional applications of graphene in devices, and in extending studies of atomically thin films onto a broader range of materials.
