Researchers Exchange Samples to Benchmark the Quality of Synthetic Monolayer layered materials


The H20 project, a Partnering Project of the Graphene Flagship, aims to expand the layered material library by introducing new organic semiconductors (OSC) down to a few monolayers in thickness, which are mechanically stable and transferable on any other layered materials for making heterostructures.

European Commission visits Graphene Pavilion at MWC19


Director General of DG CONNECT at the European Commission, Roberto Viola, visited the Graphene Pavilion at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 this morning. In a meeting with the director of the Graphene Flagship, Jari Kinaret, he discovered the ways in which graphene will enable better connectivity.

Graphene and boron nitride ‘sandwich’ key to new electronics


Picture: Carl Otto Moesgaard Graphene Flagship researchers solved one of the challenges of making graphene nano-electronics effective: to carve out graphene to nanoscale dimensions without ruining its electrical properties. This allowed them to achieve electrical currents orders of magnitude higher than previously achieved for similar structures. The work shows that the quantum transport properties needed for future electronics can survive scaling down to nanometric dimensions.

Waterproof contacts for graphene electronic circuits


The electrical contact resistance at metal–graphene interfaces can significantly degrade the properties of devices. Graphene Flagship researchers observed that when graphene is integrated with the metal of a circuit, its contact resistance is not impaired by humidity. This will help develop new sensors with a significant cost reduction.
