An International Standard for Measuring the Flatness of Graphene

An International Standard for Measuring the Flatness of Graphene

Graphene is often portrayed as the ultimate conductor, thanks to its flexibility and to its excellent conductivity. However, research has shown that the electrical and the structural quality of graphene are intimately connected, and that nanoscale lattice deformations caused by surface corrugations limit the mobility of electrons in graphene.

Graphene Sensor Rapidly Detects Opioid Metabolites in Wastewater

Graphene Sensor Rapidly Detects Opioid Metabolites in Wastewater

The unique properties of the atom-thick sheet of carbon, known as graphene, enabled a new penny-sized, multiplexed bio-sensor that's the first to detect opioid byproducts in wastewater. The novel device is the first to use graphene-based field effect transistors to detect four different synthetic and natural opioids at once, while shielding them from wastewater's harsh elements.

New Glucose Sensor Using Graphene Foam is Cheaper, More Robust

New Glucose Sensor Using Graphene Foam is Cheaper, More Robust

Researchers have developed a new sensing technique based on graphene foam for the detection of glucose levels in the blood. Since it is a chemical sensor instead of being enzyme-based, the new technology is robust, has a long shelf-life and can be tuned to detect lower glucose concentrations than current systems.

Eco-Friendly Micro-Supercapacitors Using Fallen Leaves

Eco-Friendly Micro-Supercapacitors Using Fallen Leaves

A research team has developed a graphene-inorganic-hybrid micro-supercapacitor made of leaves using femtosecond direct laser writing lithography. The advancement of wearable electronic devices is synonymous with innovations in flexible energy storage devices. Of the various energy storage devices, micro-supercapacitors have drawn a great deal of interest for their high electrical power density, long lifetimes, and short charging times.

Sensors Set to Revolutionise Brain Controlled Robotics

Sensors Set to Revolutionise Brain Controlled Robotics

A novel carbon-based biosensor is set to drive new innovations in brain-controlled robotics. The sensor is made of epitaxial graphene - essentially multiple layers of very thin, very strong carbon - grown directly onto a silicon-carbide-on-silicon substrate. The result is a highly scalable novel sensing technology that overcomes three major challenges of graphene-based biosensing: corrosion, durability and skin contact resistance
