Hall effect measurements in variable environments
Graphene Flagship parnter NPL just launched a service to measure the electrical transport properties of materials and devices, including sheet resistance, resistivity, carrier type, density, and mobility.
Graphene Flagship partner NPL, in the UK, has recently launched a Measurement Service for the “Hall effect measurements in variable environments”. This service will help researcher measure the electrical transport properties of graphene and layered materials as well as devices, including sheet resistance, resistivity, carrier type, density, and mobility.
The team at Graphene Flagship partner NPL have optimised the measurements to work with graphene and 2D materials produced using chemical vapour deposition techniques. Other possibilities include thin films, semiconductors, patterned devices and flexible electronics to name but a few.
The new measurement service will be ideal for companies in the early stages of product development, using new materials and graphene-enabled devices.
There are several challenges this service solves:
- It can rigorously scrutinise the advanced electrical properties of innovative materials under a range of environmental conditions, from vacuum, humidity, temperature and even a selection of polluting gases.
- It helps organisations troubleshoot manufacturing processes to understand the impact different material selection and environmental conditions have on production efficiencies and product performance.
- It empowers entities wanting to access high margin industrial segments operating devices in different environmental conditions and therefore diversify their product offering into lateral markets.
Please take a look at the NPL website for more information. Additionally, here is a link to a recent case study with a happy NPL customer Paragraf and a YouTube video of the lead scientist Dr Gokhan Bakan talking about this service at Graphene Week 2021.
