The company was formed by Professor Sir Colin Humphreys from the Centre for Gallium Nitride in Cambridge’s Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, along with his former postdoctoral researchers Simon Thomas and Ivor Guiney, who developed a method for the large-area deposition of graphene in 2015. The three researchers formed Paragraf early in 2018. Thomas serves the company as CEO, Guiney serves as CTO, while Humphreys serves as chair.
Paragraf has installed customized large-area graphene production, processing and characterisation equipment and has in the past fabricated "transfer-free' graphene on small silicon and sapphire wafers. The company has said it has strategic partnerships in place in preparation for rapid market entry.
