The facility will house specialist Cleanrooms, laboratories and support areas for some of the worldÍs most advanced technology research entities. Primarily research focuses upon the production and research associated with the groundbreaking material Graphene. Graphene is the thinnest known material in the universe and the strongest ever measured.
