Professor Andrea Ferrari FREng
Professor of Nanotechnology, Director, Cambridge Graphene Centre, University of Cambridge
Professor Andrea Ferrari's work sits at the frontier between engineering, nanotechnology and materials science. He is a world authority on characterisation of carbon materials, including diamond-like carbon, nanotubes and graphene. His work underpins the interpretation of Raman scattering in carbon-materials and is now a worldwide standard in industry. Collaborations with industry have enabled the pull-through of sciences to technologies in several areas. He is a global leader in graphene and related materials engineering, having pioneered many areas, from mass scale identification by spectroscopic means, to their implementation in printed and flexible electronics, photodetectors, modulators, lasers, and plasmonic structures.
