Dr Chagaan Baatar,
Office of Naval Research (ONR)
Dec 05, 2012.
In the early days of graphene research, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) played a key role by championing and providing financial support for the graphene community in US and beyond. In this talk I will cover a brief history of graphene research sponsored by ONR and will describe the current scope and future vision for the program. Current ONR graphene portfolio range from large scale graphene based flexible electronics to molecular scale atomic precision synthesis of graphene nanostructures. I will draw examples from recent projects to give audience a flavor of the kind of graphene research that is being funded by ONR and also use them to gauge progress towards realizing the program vision.
