About us

Graphene & Nanotechnologies (GPNT) is a technology-based company devoted to produce and distribute graphene and MFM tips for innovative applications.

Graphene and Nanotechnologies (GPNT) results from the synergy between a private initiative and a group of scientists. Both potentials summed up and gave rise to the creation of a technology-based company devoted to the production and distribution of highly innovative nanotechnologies.

Up to date, GPNT has developed the manufacturing procedures of two main families of products:

On the one side, we are suppliers of high-quality graphene on Silicon Carbide (SiC); and on the other side, we are capable of fabricating extra-sensitive tips for magnetic force microscopy measurements.

Founded in 2015 as a Startup company of the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM), with experience since 2006 in the fabrication of graphene on SiC; the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA), which hosts the reference laboratory in Spain for advanced microscopies; and the Materials Science Institute of Aragon (ICMA), a research institute founded in 1985 which is focused on the investigation and application of new materials.

Because of that, GPNT counts with state-of-the-art facilities for the fabrication and characterization of breakthrough technologies.
