Interview with Marko Spasenović, Graphene Flagship Associate Member, about graphene’s role in next-generation sensors
We interview Peter Steeneken (above) about the advantages of graphene and related materials in the development of sensing devices – particularly NEMS.
Cheap and efficient NO₂ sensors measure changes in graphene’s electrical resistance to record pollutant levels – and they could be strung together to create real-time pollution maps of cities.
Dubbed as the 'year of wearables', 2014 witnessed a surge in wearable technology for health applications and, since then, the rate at which products are released has not slowed down.
A team of scientists at Graphene Flagship partners have exploited the ultra-thin and highly conductive properties of graphene to develop an extremely small accelerometer with exceptional sensitivity.
New graphene-based sensors could be used by police to detect opiate abuse by analysing suspects’ urine samples.

Graphene Flagship researchers develop a sensor that records brain activity at extremely low frequencies and could lead to new treatments for epilepsy
The Graphene Flagship's Spotlight series tells the stories behind the research. PhD student Santiago J. Cartamil-Bueno is involved in various graphene-related projects. He tells u about his work and his passion for science.
The Graphene Flagship is exploring graphene and related materials for novel sensor concepts. A new mechanism of gas sensing using dark exciton states has been proposed for efficient sensing via distinct optical fingerprints.
Graphene-based transistors enable a flexible neural probe with excellent signal-to-noise ratio. Such probes are useful for examining neural activity for understanding diseases, as well as in neuroprosthetics for control of artificial limbs.
