Irish Scientists Develop Low-Cost Way to Produce Graphene

Researchers created a biocompatible graphene ink and used household printers to make electronic components.

Scientists in Ireland have developed a new low-cost method to produce graphene, which could accelerate adoption of the strong and light ‘wonder material’.

Researchers at Trinity College Dublin’s School of Physics and AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland research centre for advanced materials, teamed up with colleagues in the UK and Norway to develop a scalable graphene production method.

Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon. It is considered to be the world’s thinnest and strongest material, and there are many potential applications due to its flexibility and conductivity.
