Graphene is a hot candidate as a building material for future electronics. Thus far, however, limited access to the material has hampered research. The aims of the ConceptGraphene research project include producing graphene that is suitable for scalable electronics, demonstrating functioning circuits with the material and making it available to both academia and industry for further research and applications. Doing so will lay the groundwork for quick expansion of graphene research within the field of scalable electronics.
The material in focus is graphene from silicon carbide (SiC). ConceptGraphene's materials researchers in Linköping have developed a well-functioning production method for large graphene surface areas. Production has been commercialised by Graphensic AB.
ConceptGraphene has also produced a Hall component based on graphene from silicon carbide, which means measurement of the quantum Hall effect is quick, simple and accurate. It is very likely that our Hall component will be designated as the new measurement standard for resistance.
ConceptGraphene has also demonstrated that graphene from silicon carbide is a good platform for components and circuits, and that the material has spin effects.
