Work Package 6

The flexibility and electrical conductivity of graphene offers a very high level of sensitivity. In the Sensors Work Package, we exploit the unique properties of graphene and other layered materials to develop new sensing materials and devices. Our main goal is to make sensors that are smaller and more sensitive than existing ones.

We also want to develop new optical readout methods, integrate sensors into electronic devices and even into packaging, and design new ways to fabricate them.

Breaking into industry

We aim to turn the Graphene Flagship’s goal of industrialisation into a reality by collaborating closely with EU-based companies, including Graphene Flagship partners Prognomics and Infineon. We have already shown the first proof that our graphene sensors can be integrated into CMOS chips on a commercial basis, so it is only a matter of time before we can produce graphene-based sensors on an industrial level.
