The serial mechanical exfoliation method available can not be used for the assembly of graphene in the large scale. In this process, deposition of ultrathin few-layer (three to ten) graphene oxide, with parallel and controllable assembly, by dielectrophoresis between prefabricated electrodes has been demonstrated.
Inkjet printing is a promising technique for printing of electronic materials and devices over large areas on flexible substrates. Inkjet printing is a versatile approach involving a limited number of steps with the ability to deposit controlled amounts of material. The development of inks for inkjet printing can be tailored to optimize the properties of the printed films and structures, and are additionally versatile in that virtually any nanomaterial composition can be incorporated as long as the nanostructure size is sufficiently small that the inkjet nozzle does not become clogged.
Carbon Sciences is developing a breakthrough technology to mass-produce graphene, the new miracle material. Graphene, a sheet of pure carbon that is only one atom thick, is flexible, transparent, impermeable to moisture, stronger than diamonds and more conductive than gold.
The Mission of the Cambridge Graphene Centre is to investigate the science and technology of graphene, carbon allotropes, layered crystals and hybrid nanomaterials. This engineering innovation centre allows our partners to meet, and effectively establish joint industrial-academic activities to promote innovative and adventurous research with an emphasis on applications.
