Swedish technology startup to develop graphene-on-SiC

March 28, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Graphensic is Europe's first supplier of graphene on silicon carbide. The Swedish manufacturer is a university spin off company that has developed a method for growth of high quality material with primary target to be used in high speed electronics and sensors.

With an increasing customer demand of their graphene, there is a need to focus more on international business development and company visions. The company has recruited Jonas Nilsson, previously CEO of SP Devices, to be its new chairman of the board.

Graphene is one of the materials believed to have the greatest potential for future applications. It is a close balance between research and market applications which makes it challenging to predict the market. Recently the graphene research area was given a €1 billion funding from the European Commission as one of Europe’s first 10-year, 1,000 million euro FET flagships.

As CEO Jonas Nilsson has built up SP Devices from a university spin off to a commercial company. His mission is to further develop the business approach of the company, and looks forward to his new assignments.

- Graphensic is an exciting young company with a great potential in a market that can offer tremendous opportunities. It will be exciting to see how we can bring the company to the next level, says Jonas Nilsson about his new role.

Graphensic is located at the Mjärdevi Science Park close to the Linköping University and it is a company within LEAD Incubator that supports companies with business development.
