Graphene is a sheet of carbon that is only 1 molecule thick. It is the lightest, strongest, most electrically conductive material known. People have called it the miracle material of the 21st century because it offers superior properties to any material in current use.
Scientists in the United Kingdom won the Nobel Prize in 2010, for research on graphene. In fact, because the material is so extraordinary, there is a great deal of research being conducted, but it is mostly on a small scale.
Graphene Frontiers conquered scale. The company’s founders, Charlie Johnson and Zhengtang Luo, perfected a proprietary manufacturing process that supports mass production for industrial and commercial uses.
Their process creates a continuous graphene production and transfer line that allows for production of high quality graphene films at a cost lower than existing technology and competing materials.
We produce our graphene at atmospheric pressure, rather than low pressure. This innovation eliminates the need for an enclosed vacuum chamber. In other words, Graphene Frontiers can produce graphene roll-to-roll, using the same systems that have long been established at consumer electronics manufacturers.
Graphene Frontiers has developed a patent pending etch-free, or non-toxic, transfer process that enables us to reuse the copper substrate.

Angstron is the first advanced materials company to offer large quantities of ultra-thin, pristine nano-graphene platelets (NGPs). Angstron currently has the world’s largest graphene production capacity at approximately 300 metric tons per year. This capacity means that Angstron can fill orders suitable for large scale industrial and commercial applications. This production scale also means that Angstron is significantly reducing production cost barriers with its high performance nano-graphene solutions. A new 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility, based in Dayton, Ohio, allows our company to continue its research and development efforts while providing small to large batch processing and production.
By combining R&D with in-depth engineering, application knowledge and real world experience, Angstron not only has the technology customers need, but the capability to provide total turnkey solutions from application development and pilot quantities for test articles to scale-up for required production volumes.
The Angstron team is led by Dr. Bor Jang, a pioneer in advancing the field of nano-graphene platelets. In addition to NGPs, Dr. Jang is a leading expert in the research and development of low-cost carbon nanomaterials, batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells with more than 160 patents to his name.
Angstron’s scientists and specialists have more than 50 years of combined experience. We’ll help you harness the performance advantages of NGPs to create a next generation product that’s better. Our team will also walk you through each step of the process to find the most efficient, cost effective manufacturing methods and prepare for market entry.

Solar cell materials can be assessed by spectral and temporal fluorescence spectroscopy using the products offered by Edinburgh Instruments.
The energy received on earth by the sun in one hour is equivalent to the energy consumed by the world in a year. Photovoltaic solar cells convert this solar energy into electricity in a sustainable way compared to fossil fuels.
Solar cells can be made of semiconductors, polymers, dyes and phosphors. Organic as well as organic/inorganic approaches are currently followed.
Research is focussed on materials that absorb a wider part of the solar spectrum, while improving the electronic transport at a low cost. In addition, charge mobility and stability are challenges especially for dye-sensitised and perovskite solar cells.
The fluorescence emission, quantum yield and lifetime of nanoscale materials can be characterised with a range of Edinburgh Instruments’ products.
Nanoscale materials such as quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles and nanostructures exhibit strong spatial confinement upon photo-excitation and tuneable emission, which makes them extremely useful in photonic applications.
Emission at desired wavelengths has been widely demonstrated in the past, however research is currently focused on improving the quantum yield as well as the photo-stability and chemical stability for example in core/shell geometries. New materials are investigated in the zeroth dimension in dots, the second in sheets such as graphene, or the third in nanostructures, whereas applications from optoelectronic devices to medical diagnostics and quantum computing.
