Piezoelectric Graphene Ink Enables Thin-Film Pressure Sensors of Any Size

UK-based Haydale Graphene Industries Plc has established itself over the years as one of the go-to companies if you wanted graphene to have just the right properties for the device you were aiming to develop. If you wanted the graphene to have high conductivity, or maybe conductivity was not as critical as its thermal properties, Haydale was the place you would go to get graphene that did exactly what you wanted. The task of functionalizing and dispersing graphene so that it bonds with the resin or polymer matrix in which it is being used has proven trickier than many companies had initially thought. Scores of novices have tried mixing batches of graphene into their products, only to have it make the products worse rather than better. The backbone of Haydale’s business has been providing expertise on how to extract graphene’s attractive properties. But now the company is m...
