About the Center

CNG – Center for Nanostructured Graphene – is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (Danmarks Grundforskningsfond),with a total budget of 100 mill. DKK for the ten-year period 2012 – 2022.

The main partners in CNG are DTU Fotonik, DTU Physics, DTU Nanolab, Aalborg University and DTU Chemistry. The center is headed by Prof. Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Physics. 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 fifty 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, materials scientists, 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.
