An intense opening day at Graphene Week was followed by two days that revealed the full potential of graphene, both for applications and for new science. Graphenea participation is still very immersive, in line with the company’s pivotal role in the Graphene Flagship.
Both days’ morning plenary sessions highlighted fascinating new developments, revealing that new applications of graphene will keep...
The 13th edition of Graphene Week, Europe’s central graphene conference, kicked off this morning in San Sebastian. We are happy to welcome all attendees to our hometown!
The opening ceremony hosted high-ranking officials of the European Commission and local government, including the president of the Basque Government Inigo Urkullu. Jari Kinaret, Director of the Graphene Flagship, also welcomed...
MIT and Graphenea have developed an array of graphene sensors for sensitive and selective detection of ammonia. The array consists of 160 graphene pixels, allowing large statistics that result in improved sensing performance. The sensors are extensively tested for various real-life operational conditions, which is a step forward to practical use.
The sensors are built by attaching porphyrins, a...
Graphenea and partners have successfully completed project NanoGraM that pushed the limits of nano/microelectromechanical (NEMS/MEMS) devices based on graphene. The project focused on three specific device concepts for potential future products:
- Graphene microphones
- Graphene-membrane pressure sensors
- Graphene-membrane Hall sensors
The target markets for these devices include portable electronics...
Due to its unique structure and amazing physicochemical properties including high chemical inertness, large specific surface area, high electric conductivity, mechanical flexibility, and biocompatibility, graphene holds great potential for bioelectronic implants.
One of the prominent uses of graphene in bioelectronics is recording of electrical signals from body parts, such as the heart or brain. ...
