The Morphologi 4-ID is a static imaging and spectroscopy system providing automated size, shape and chemical identity.

The graphene market is a key growth area and a current pain is the multiple techniques, cost and analysis time required to verify product properties.

The Morphologi 4-ID can address some of these issues by removing some of the measurements required, providing automation and clearer data linking size and shape to chemical information.

The methodology to make this possible for the graphene market would be novel and innovative.

However, we lack expertise to test a prototype system with samples with which we are sufficiently confident of their properties.

We would like to work with NPL who can bring expertise to testing the prototype against orthogonal techniques and can therefore help validate both the methodologies and capabilities of the system.

In parallel, we would like to work with NPL to develop the rationale for a graphene Raman standard, this may require a suite of samples.

No such reference exists for this market and this would be a large help in being able to demonstrate the properties of customers’ samples.

Graphene producers could buy such a standard to demonstrate the quality of their products by verifying the products against a standard.
