The Laboratory for Graphene Research is currently setting up the following facilities:

·          Chemical vapor deposition systems for synthesizing graphene and related materials

·          Set-up for graphene exfoliation using our pioneered molecular wedging technique

·          Room temperature electrical characterization (2,3, and 4-probe DC and low-freq AC)

·          UV-vis spectrophotometer

·          Solar Cell testing setup

·          Electrochemisty including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy

A number of other nanoscale materials characterization units will be set up in future.
