O Insper recebeu o Professor Konstantin Novoselov FRS, premiado com o Nobel de Física de 2010, em palestra gratuita que abordou os mais recentes avanços na ciência do carbono, o isolamento do grafeno.
O evento contou também com a presença do Professor Antonio H. Castro Neto, um dos líderes internacionais na pesquisa do grafeno e Diretor do Centro de Materiais Avançados 2D, da Universidade Nacional de Singapura, considerado como o centro de referência mundial na pesquisa em grafeno e materiais bidimensionais (2D).
O carbono é um elemento muito versátil, além do fato de que ele estabelece na fundação da vida na terra, nos fornece materiais tão diferentes como grafite e diamante, forma as bases da ferramenta artística mais versátil, o lápis. Este material estritamente bidimensional era presumido não existir no estado livre e foi descoberto alguns anos atrás. O grafeno possui um número de superlativos: é o material mais condutor, mais termicamente condutor, mais impermeável e assim por diante. Todas estas propriedades tornam extremamente excitantes para uma série de aplicações: de baterias e compósitos para eletrônica e telecomunicações.

Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences Prof Sir Konstantin ‘Kostya’ Novoselov FRS was born in Russia in August 1974. He is best known for isolating graphene at The University of Manchester in 2004, and is an expert in condensed matter physics, mesoscopic physics and nanotechnology. Every year since 2014 Kostya Novoselov is included in the list of the most highly cited researchers in the world. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010 for his achievements with graphene. Kostya holds a position of a Research Professor at the National University of Singapore. He is also part time Langworthy Professor of Physics and the Royal Society Research Professor at The University of Manchester. He graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and undertook his PhD studies at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands before moving to The University of Manchester in 2001. Later Professor Novoselov joint the National University of Singapore in 2019. Professor Novoselov has published more than 320 peer-reviewed research papers. He was awarded with numerous prizes, including Nicholas Kurti Prize (2007), International Union of Pure and Applied Science Prize (2008), MIT Technology Review young innovator (2008), Europhysics Prize (2008), Bragg Lecture Prize from the Union of Crystallography (2011), the Kohn Award Lecture (2012), Leverhulme Medal from the Royal Society (2013), Onsager medal (2014), Carbon medal (2016), Dalton medal (2016) among many others. He was knighted in the 2012 New Year Honours.
