Speakers: Philip Thomas

In the decade since graphene was first isolated it has progressed from starting as a scientific curiosity to becoming the driving force behind one of the most active research areas today. In this talk we will explore the fundamentals of graphene science, the ongoing cutting-edge research into the new class of two-dimensional materials and touch on just a few of their possible uses in applications such as aviation, transparent electronics and water filtration.

Philip Thomas is a researcher at the University of Manchester and member of the Graphene-NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT). He is based in the graphene group studying the optical properties of metallic nanostructures combined with two-dimensional materials. He has been heavily involved in the CDT’s outreach programme, delivering talks in schools and at science festivals to a variety of audiences.
