2-DTech, a spin-off from England’s University of Manchester, has secured a $150,000 grant from the U.K. government agency Innovate UK. The firm will use the money to improve anticorrosive coatings for copper with silicon-doped graphene. Such coatings “could be instrumental in preventing failure of critical electronics hardware and thermal management systems exposed to harsh operational conditions,” says Nigel Salter, 2-DTech’s managing director.
