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.

Scientists at the University of Sussex may have found a solution to the long-standing problem of brittle smartphone screens. Dr Matthew Large explains.
Costly smartphone screen breakages could soon be a thing of the past after British scientists invented a cheap flexible touchscreen made of silver and graphene.
Coverage of the Materials Physics group at the University of Sussex, and the development of new flexible touchscreen technology based on graphene and silver nanowires. Aired on BBC South East on Friday 27th of October 2017.
AMD’s Chief Science Officer, Prof. Alan Dalton will be speaking at the inaugural New Statesman’s Emerging Technology Conference.
