Dr Oliver Burton works on integrated routes to 2D material synthesis and subsequent application in device fabrication. Working on the chemical vapour deposition of 2D materials such as graphene, Oliver is using both in-situ and ex-situ characterisation methods to understand how these materials grow and how we can control and utilise contamination levels of certain elements in the catalyst to the advantage of the final 2D film quality. In parallel he is working towards optimising the application of these films after their growth for both research and industry and working on novel repeatable methods of process tolerant 2D material based device fabrication.
