Key facts

  • First to demonstrate growth of CNTs at low temperatures, ultimately leading to formation of spin-out company, Surrey Nanosystems.

  • In partnership with NPL we have fabricated nanoSQUIDS that hold the world record for the lowest noise
  • Invention of the Source-Gated Transistor, a new type of transistor device.
  • Conducting research into increasing the solar-energy conversion efficiency by incorporating carbon nanotubes and other functional materials.

  • Working with several partners to bring nanotechnology to everyday applications, such as gas sensors and electronic devices.
