Session on Graphene in Grenoble, France Print E-mail

Hosted by the GIANT Innovation Campus in Grenoble, France, this Session created three teams of young researchers and challenge them to design a team project that leveraged their complementary strengths. Each team included members from around the world and a balanced range of capabilities including materials synthesis, characterization, device design and fabrication, theory and measurement, etc.  The teams received project mentoring from leading graphene experts including Harry Kroto and Sumio Iijima.
