There is a revolution going on. It has happened in condensed matter-physics and now it’s happening in material science […] the revolution’s name is the age of two-dimensional materials.

Professor Sir Andre Geim Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist

Professor Sir Andre Geim is a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, best known for his isolation of Graphene, a one-atom-thick material, which is 200 times stronger than steel.

As part of his talk at the G-Research Distinguished Speaker Symposium on The Future of Chips and Electronics, Geim discussed the role of Graphene, as well as hundreds of other wonder materials, in the age of two-dimensional materials.

Before taking to the stage, we took the opportunity to speak to the father of Graphene about his discovery, its growing list of applications within industry, and his own approach to research.
