Physics World Focus On Nanotechnology 2013

Reaping the benefits of nanotechnology

This special focus issue of Physics World, is brought to you in partnership with our sister publication In an exclusive report, Kostya S Novoselov, who shared the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on graphene, explains the design process behind the UK’s new National Graphene Institute, which is being built in Manchester. Other highlights include a primer on the graphene market today through the eyes of specialist materials provider, Haydale, and a look at how nanotechnology could help to green the electricity grid. Finally, find out more about e-learning options for topping up your nanotechnology knowledge – all you need is a computer and a connection to the Internet.
