A new understanding of the physics of conductive materials has been uncovered by scientists observing the unusual movement of electrons in graphene.
Graphene is an excellent material for application in sensor technology. Because every atom of graphene is exposed to it's environment meaning it can detect changes in it's surroundings.
In this video of the series we explore what this ability to sense even individual molecules means for applications. The video discusses camera sensors, sensors for chemical detection and toxic gases, and even measuring stresses and strains of man made structures such as bridges.
The narrator is Dr Aravind Vijayaraghavan, a lecturer in Nanomaterials.
