Materials Professor Deji Akinwande Receives Geim and Novoselov Graphene Prize

Assistant Professor Deji Akwinwande has been awarded the first Geim and Novoselov Graphene Prize during the gala dinner at the IEEE nano conference in Birmingham, UK. The award recognizes Dr. Akinwande’s work on ” flexible multifinger graphene device technology” and in particular his invention of graphene transistors for high speed high frequency flexible nano electronics. Graphene transistors on flexible substrates could enable future flexible smart systems. The prize is named in honor of the 2010 Nobel laureates for graphene discovery.
