Graphene, the “miracle material” behind the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, is a single-atom-thick layer of carbon. Graphene’s unique 2-D structure determines equally unique properties: optical transparency, high conductivity, impermeability and exceptional strength.
Graphene’s properties will revolutionize high sensitivity chemical detection devices and biosensors, desalination membranes and flexible touchscreens but producing the material in bulk remains a challenge. Existing techniques allow researchers to produce only small patches or flakes. Graphene Frontiers’ CVD approach can produce meter-long sheets of the material. We do not use a vacuum, nor any toxic chemical etches, enabling us to easily integrate with other industrial processes while lowering costs and reducing environmental impact.
