CealTech: a new world of graphene technology

  • Sector: Infrastructure
  • Date: February 27, 2017

  • Company: CealTech is Norway's leading knowledge hub for graphene, and is involved in custumer-focused R&D, production and optimisation of graphene in product development.

Nai-Chang Yeh, physics professor from the University of California, explains the history and properties of the nanomaterial graphene. Furthermore, Yeh talks about the unique production method developed by the University.

CealTech has signed global cooperation- and licensing agreements with the University of California to use the Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) production method. CealTech is to build the production unit of pure high-quality graphene. The machine is named FORZA and will be stationed at the facilities of CealTech on Forus, Norway.


Nai-Chang Yeh (information about the speaker)

Yeh’s principal research field is experimental condensed matter physics, with special emphasis on correlated electrons, topological matter, spintronics, low-dimensional materials, nanoscience and nanotechnology, energy research, and precise measurements using superconducting technology.

Yeh received her B.Sc. degree in physics from National Taiwan University in 1983 and Ph.D. degree in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1988. She joined the physics faculty of Caltech in 1989 and tenured as an associate professor in 1995, and promoted to full professorship in 1997.

She is the first woman professor tenured in physics at Caltech, and is an elected fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science in the US and also an elected fellow and chartered physicist of The Institute of Physics in the UK.
