Graphene has often been described as a “wonder-material”. What is it? How is it made? How will this material revolutionise the world around us? Covering everything from Cellotape to Condoms, Jamie Williams, a postgraduate researcher from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, tells the story and discusses the science behind the original discovery, its manufacture, the amazing properties Graphene has, and some of the current research taking place at the University of Leicester. The Lunchtime Lecture series takes place Fridays, 12-1pm at the Leicester Adult Education College, located at 2 Wellington St, near the city end of New Walk. The lectures are delivered by current University of Leicester postgraduates and are open to the public, so there is no need to book, just come along on the day.
