Center for Nanostructured Graphene

Organization profile

Organisation profile

CNG – Center for Nanostructured Graphene – is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (Danmarks Grundforskningsfond), with a 54 mill. Dkr  grant, starting in February 2012 and running initially for six years.

The main partners in CNG are DTU Fotonik, DTU Fysik, DTU CEN, Aalborg University and DTU Nanotech which is the main stake-holder. The center is headed by Prof. Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Nanotech.The grant from DNRF finances  the research carried out by ten junior researchers (ph.d students and post-docs).  In addition,  many other researchers on the DTU campus  are independently financed stake-holders in CNG’s research program, so that all in all more than sixty persons contribute towards CNG’s goals (Oct 2013).

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, nanofabrication specialists, experimental physicists, and condensed matter theorists using a wide palette of analytical and numerical techniques, including large scale simulations of nanodevices, ab initio electronic structure calculations, and theory of quantum transport.
