Since Andre Geim and others mechanically exfoliated the first sheets of graphene in 2004 at the University of Manchester in the U.K., work that would win them the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010, research interest in grapheme materials has increased at an exponential rate. Our group is working on many interesting fronts of graphene research including: forming graphene-like sheets from the reduction of graphene oxide, solvent exfoliation for pristine graphene sheets, and using graphene materials as a composite material. Each of these research areas have various potential applications while also furthering the understanding of graphene as a whole.
