About the Center

CNG – Center for Nanostructured Graphene – is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (Danmarks Grundforskningsfond), with a 54 mill. Dkr  grant. CNG was established in February 2012 and will initially run for six years.

The main partners in CNG are DTU Fotonik, DTU Fysik, DTU CEN, Aalborg University and DTU Nanotech. The center is headed by Prof. Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Nanotech. The grant from DNRF finances  the research carried out by junior researchers (PhD students and postdocs). In addition, other researchers on the DTU campus are independently financed stake-holders in CNG’s research program, so that all in all more than sixty persons contribute towards CNG’s goals.

CNG focuses on basic research, but all its research projects have long-time perspectives which the aim at applications. CNG’s research profile has a broad range: it involves polymer chemists, nanofabrication specialists, experimental physicists, and condensed matter theorists, who use a wide palette of analytical and numerical techniques, including large scale simulations of nanodevices, ab initio electronic structure calculations, and theory of quantum transport.
