London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN)
Located in the London neighbourhoods Bloomsbury and South Kensington, LCN is a new UK-based multisciplinary research centre, purpose-built to enable work at the forefront of science and technology. The LCN brings together two of the world's leading institutions, namely University College London (UCL) and Imperial College London, with strong capabilities in the underlying disciplines - engineering, physical sciences and biomedicine - which are bridged by nanotechnology. Our aim is to provide the nanoscience and nanotechnology needed to solve major problems in information processing, health care, and energy and environment.

Evidence for Graphene-Sheet-Driven Superconducting State in Graphite Intercalation Compounds
Graphite intercalation compounds (GICs) are formed by the insertion of arrays of guest species between the layered sheets of the graphite host. This can greatly modify the electronic properties of the graphite and can lead to interesting phenomena, for example, superconductivity.
