Update: We discussed Graphene Frontiers' technology and business with their CEO

Graphene Frontiers logoGraphene Frontiers has been awarded a $744,600 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop roll-to-roll graphene production. This is a SBIR Phase II grant that will focus on scaling Graphene Frontier's production capacity.

Graphene Frontiers was established in 2011 as a spin-off from the University of Pennsylvania to develop the new graphene production technology (which they call "Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition" - APCVD). Their process can produce meter-long sheets of graphene without a need for a vacuum chamber which will hopefully lead to low-cost production.
