Thanks for a great Carbonhagen2013!

The fourth edition of Carbonhagen was launched on the 19th-20th August at Copenhagen University. More than 130 people participated and the seminar was once again a great success!

The seminar included many interesting talks, among others two great keynote speakers; Prof. Antonio Castro Neto, director of the Graphene Research Centre in Singapore and Prof. Ernie Hill, Associate Director of the Center for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology (CMN) in Manchester.

In addition to the plenary talks, the seminar included an afternoon poster-session and company/sponsor exhibition throughout both days.

Winner of best poster Bjarke Sørensen Jessen

Bjarke Sørensen Jessen from CNG and DTU Nanotech won one of the two first Prizes for best poster. His poster was entitled: “Towards Few-row Graphene Antidot Lattice Transistors”.
