Emerging technologies such as graphene are being investigated for their potential to improve decommissioning of nuclear sites.
To identify how graphene, an emerging technology, could improve delivery of NDA’s mission.
Review the properties of graphene, latest developments and areas for potential deployment.
Graphene is a relatively new material, first isolated from bulk graphite in 2004. The discovery led to the 2010 Nobel Physics Prize for Professor Andre Geim and Professor Konstantin Novoselov from the University of Manchester.
Graphene’s chemical and physical properties are unique. It:
is one of the thinnest but also strongest materials
conducts heat better than all other materials
is optically transparent but so dense that it is impermeable to gases
Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) works in partnership with its customers, using its knowledge and expertise to provide bespoke graphene dispersions and formats to deliver enhancements and benefits for a wide range of applications. The Group’s strategy is to target commercial applications in three core markets: coatings, composites and functional materials.
