Atomic Mechanics

About Us

Atomic Mechanics is a limited company based in Manchester, founded in 2017. It has been created to design, manufacture and commercialise a range of sensor and actuator devices based on a patented graphene-based technology.

Atomic Mechanics is currently working in close partnership with the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester to develop its first products based on a transparent flexible force sensor filme.

These products are manufactured using state of the art clean-room facilities using advanced material fabrication technology and the Atomic Mechanics core know-how of carbon-nanomaterial engineering.
