Graphene for electronics

As the electronics industry strives to maintain its pace of innovation, graphene – being flexible, strong, thin and highly conductive – has much to offer. Graphene can help to facilitate the next generation of technology from chips and interconnects for data communication to flexible screens for wearable technology. With miniaturisation a major driving factor of the electronics industry, graphene’s thinness coupled with its high room temperature conductivity shows great promise. 

In the wireless domain, first prototypes of flexible near-field communication antennas based on graphene have been built, providing a very competitive solution for flexible radio frequency identification tags. Coupling graphene’s ability to be integrated into electronics with its excellent sensing ability means that it can also be used to provide the building blocks for the internet of things.
All these subareas represent good opportunities for Europe, either because companies/industries can be enabled by graphene development or because a good part of the corresponding value chain is already in Europe, and in many cases world class research is supporting the creation of new products.

Graphene and Internet of Things?

To ensure a future lifestyle where a high level of interconnectivity makes our daily lives safer and more efficient, we need new solutions for faster transmissions, lower energy consumption, and small, flexible devices – all at a lower cost than what is now possible. 

Graphene can play an important part in reaching this goal.
