Nashville, TN– The National Graphene Association, the main organization and body in the US advocating and promoting the commercialization of graphene, is pleased to announce the addition of a new Corporate Partner: Oxford Instruments. They will also be supporting the American Graphene Summit as a Graphene Sponsor, the highest level of sponsorship.
Oxford Instruments is a leading provider of high technology tools and systems for industry and research. It designs and manufactures equipment for fabrication, analysis and manipulation of matter at the atomic scale for a wide variety of applications ranging from semiconductors to life sciences, astronomy, quantum technologies and 2D materials which graphene is one of the key development materials for new applications. Oxford Instruments offers reliable and high-performance solutions for the graphene market and specializes in fabrication equipment for production and various instrumentation for metrology and testing.
“It is a pleasure to have Oxford Instruments as a Corporate Partner of the NGA. As we expedite the commercialization of graphene, the need for more advanced graphene synthesis equipment and reliable characterization tools will increase. As a leading provider of high technology characterization and manufacturing equipment, Oxford Instruments will be a strategic partner that will enable us to address the growing demands of the graphene industry”, said Dr. Zina Jarrahi Cinker, Executive Director of the NGA.
“Commercialization of any new technology needs strong efforts to bring together key stakeholders across all sectors. We are very pleased to partner with the NGA who are doing a tremendous job of leading this effort in the United States. Oxford Instruments believes in the potential of graphene in key markets such as Optoelectronics, Sensing and Energy and look forward to working with the NGA to enable these technologies through our fabrication and metrology tools“, said Dr. Roger Proksch, Chief Technology Officer at Oxford Instruments.
Oxford Instruments will be supporting the unprecedented American Graphene Summit to be held in Washington, D.C., May 21-22, 2019 as a Graphene Sponsor. The summit will feature the “Graphene On Capitol Hill” event, keynoted by Senator Roger Wicker. (R. Miss), chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee. Responding to Senator Wicker’s invitation, senior members of Congress and Administration and leaders of graphene industries will focus on shaping the architecture surrounding graphene technologies and evaluate its impact on the U.S. and the global economy.
ABOUT THE NATIONAL GRAPHENE ASSOCIATION
The National Graphene Association (NGA) is the primary organization and body in the United States advocating and promoting the commercialization of graphene and addressing critical issues such as standards and policy development. Dubbed the “wonder material of 21st century,” graphene is the thinnest and strongest material ever discovered. Graphene is one atomic layer of carbon — transparent, flexible, and an excellent thermal and electrical conductor. NGA convenes current and future graphene stakeholders from graphene companies, research bodies, suppliers, developers, investors, venture capitalist and government agencies to drive innovation and expedite the commercialization of graphene technologies globally. Founded in 2016 by Dr. Ed Meek, the National Graphene Association is headquartered in Oxford, Mississippi, USA.
