Graphene Monolayer Film
Graphene monolayer film, for applications in energy generation and storage
Ready to use for various research purposes
Graphene monolayer film consists of an atomically-thin layer of carbon atoms that are arranged in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. It was first isolated via mechanical exfoliation - the Scotch-tape method. Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) and epitaxial methods were later developed and commonly used as alternative methods for growing research-grade single, bilayer and few-layer graphene films.
Applications of Graphene Monolayer Film
With a unique combination of novel electronic, optical, and mechanical properties, graphene-based nanomaterials have applications in energy generation and storage. For example, they can applied in photovoltaic devices and batteries, sensors and flexible electronics, photodetectors, and biomedical applications (e.g. drug delivery, bio-imaging, and tissue engineering).
High-quality monolayer graphene films were first grown directly on copper foil via the chemical vapour deposition (CVD) method. The films were later transferred to the desired substrates via the wet chemical graphene-transfer process.
Monolayer graphene films are ready to use in various research purposes, such as microscopic analysis, photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopy studies. Graphene monolayer films can also be transferred to other substrates.
