Why Grafets?

A scientific extract from the NGI

We determine conditions for the formation of compressible stripes near the quantum Hall effect (QHE) edges of top-gated epitaxial graphene on Si-terminated SiC (G/SiC) and compare those to graphene exfoliated onto insulating substrate in the field-effect-transistor (GraFET) geometry. For G/SiC, a large density of localized surface states on SiC just underneath graphene layer and charge transfer between them lead both to doping of graphene and to screening of potential profile near its edge. This suppresses formation of compressible stripes near QHE edges in graphene, making them much narrower than the corresponding compressible stripes in GraFETs.

GraFETs- where Graphene thins at the edge of a sheet

Paul Roden, Owner says: “We are inspired by the world’s first 2D material Graphene, first isolated at Manchester University. Grafene is our food and drink interpretation of this exciting new chapter in Manchester’s rich history, and of the excitement and energy there is around its possibilities for science and technology. Grefetes is a simple extension for our “Social Plates” to taste.

FoodShak REVIEW

We headed over to @grafene to try their vegetarian set menu which is 3 course journey that takes your taste buds to places they haven’t been before.

One thing Grafene can’t be faulted on is presentation. Every dish we had was so delicately put together it was almost a shame to eat it.

We started with the beetroot, the taste is unlike anything you expect with the surprises of granola pieces combined with the sharp taste of the verjus, it’s a mixture of flavours which make this a truly unique dish.

For mains we decided to try the potato celeriac and leek which came out yet again perfectly plated up with the elements of the dish complementing one another beautifully.

Dessert was mint chocolate brownie which was far from any other brownie we have seen with shards of chocolate arranged around the outside giving it that wow factor when it arrives.

The set menu is more than just a 3 course meal, there are surprises along the way which make the experience even better. One of these we have to mention is the bread. It’s freshly made in little loaves and served with the creamiest butter, it really is a fantastic start to the set menu.
