The University of Cambridge has reported that Paragraf, one of its spinouts and a Parkwalk portfolio company, has started producing graphene
A sheet of carbon just one atomic layer thick, at up to eight inches (20cm) in diameter, large enough for commercial electronic devices.
Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, the founding professor of the technology, is quoted – “Paragraf has the potential to transform a wide range of industries, including electronics, energy and healthcare,” said Humphreys. “It will enable the basic science results achieved in laboratories worldwide using small graphene flakes to be commercially exploited in graphene-based devices and to realise the potential and benefits to society of graphene, the wonder material.”

The production follows the opening of a groundbreaking new facility in October, after Parkwalk’s seed investment in early 2018.
