AMD is delighted to announce its application for funding via the UK Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), in the field of “signature management”, has been successful.
Advanced Material Development Ltd is delighted to announce a new partner in its academic collaboration programme, having signed a framework agreement with the University of Surrey. This agreement will further AMD’s R&D efforts in the field of Materials Science and will complement its work already taking place at the University of Sussex.
Having just been short-listed for the Sussex Business Awards, “Start-Up of the Year” category, AMD is also delighted to announce that it’s work with the University of Sussex 18 strong material physics group has now commenced under the direction of Prof. Alan Dalton.
About four years ago, Alan Dalton, a professor at the University of Sussex in the UK, made some news in graphene circles when, in collaboration with colleagues at Trinity College Dublin, he demonstrated that rubber bands when combined with graphene could serve as effective health monitors.
As one of the longest running series of international nanoscale carbon conferences in Europe (since 1998), NanoteC has brought together the world’s leading thinkers in fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene and related two-dimensional materials.
Sussex-based Advanced Material Development (AMD) has raised a total of £750,000 in funding, as the company launches its plan to exploit the commercial potential of applications for graphene and other 2D nanomaterials.
Derived from Graphite, Graphene is the world’s first 2D material. Over 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair; it’s just a single atom deep. It’s super flexible, incredibly light and very conductive. In short, it’s the material of the future and opportunities for its use are potentially enormous.
Approximately 300 babies die suddenly and unexpectedly every year in the UK, shattering the lives of their families, but researchers at the University of Sussex are hoping a new monitor they’ve developed could help prevent the tragedy of cot death.
The risk of cot death could be reduced by a new Fitbit-style baby monitor that will let parents track heart and breathing rates via updates to their smartphone.
