UK project aims to use standard atomic layer deposition technique to fabricate graphene

A few weeks ago the UK government announced extra funding of £21.5 million to boost graphene research and development in the UK. One of the projects that got £1.1 million is a joint-venture between the University of Bath and the University of Exeter to develop a new graphene production method based on standard atomic layer deposition.

This project (located at the University of Bath's Center of Graphene Research) aims to develop a method to fabricate graphene directly onto a wide range of important materials (like semiconductor wafers) - this will hopefully accelerate the commercial update of graphene.
