Center for Nanostructured Graphene

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

CNG – Center for Nanostructured Graphene – is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (Danmarks Grundforskningsfond),with a total budget of 100 mill. DKK for the ten-year period 2012 – 2022.

The main partners in CNG are DTU FotonikDTU PhysicsDTU NanolabAalborg University and DTU Chemistry. The center is headed by Prof. Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Physics. The grant from DNRF finances the research carried out by junior researchers (PhD students and postdocs). In addition, other researchers on the DTU campus are independently financed stake-holders in CNG’s research program, so that all in all more than fifty persons contribute towards CNG’s goals.

CNG focuses on basic research, but all its research projects have long-time perspectives which the aim at applications. CNG’s research profile has a broad range: it involves polymer chemists, materials scientists, nanofabrication specialists, experimental physicists, and condensed matter theorists, who use a wide palette of analytical and numerical techniques, including large scale simulations of nanodevices, ab initio electronic structure calculations, and theory of quantum transport. 

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
