Graphene for sensors
Graphene’s large surface area, high electrical conductivity, unique optical properties and high thermal conductivity make it ideal for sensors. Ultra-sensitive graphene-based sensors can also be smaller, lighter and less expensive than traditional sensors. Graphene sensors can be used in a variety of different ways; from chemical based gas, pH and environment contamination sensors, through to pressure and strain sensors.
The biological compatibility of graphene also sees it being used in biological sensors capable of sensing molecules such as DNA and many different analytes, like glucose, glutamate, cholesterol, haemoglobin. Graphene sensors might enhance our lives, from the creation of smart food packaging that can monitor suitability of food for human consumption, through to wearable sensors that can monitor health in real time.
Graphene for IOT and sensors
See what graphene can do for IoT and sensors! Highlights from the Graphene Flagship exhibition at Mobile World Congress 2017 includes solutions showing how graphene can be used to enable a higher level of connectivity, ranging from smart homes and self-driving cars to monitoring dangerous chemicals.
The latest on sensors
The new biosensor looks like a small box connected to a mobile phone. This device can immediately detect even very small antibiotic residues, namely ampicillin, in water or dairy products.
