Erwin Schrödinger Lecture by Sir Andre Geim

Nobel Laureate (and first and only person to be awarded both Nobel and Ig Nobel Prizes) Sir Andre Geim (University of Manchester, UK) will give an Erwin Schrödinger Lecture titled “Random Walk to Graphene” hosted by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW).

Graphene – a single plane of carbon atoms – is not only the thinnest but also probably the simplest material one can imagine. On the other hand, graphene has acquired so many superlatives to its name that it is often called a wonder material. This lecture will discuss how Sir Andre Geim’s research started and further tries to explain in a simple, not too scientific way why graphene has attracted so much attention.
