Summary:
ISU researchers have developed a process that can be used to produce flexible circuits such as biosensors.

Development Stage:
Description:
Printable graphene ink can be printed onto flexible materials via an ink jet printer.  This process can be used to produce flexible circuits such as biosensors.  The ISU researchers have combined the properties of a new ink formulation with a laser post-annealing process that results in the printed graphene sheet having a resistance of < 1 kOhm which has not been reported in previous literature.  Such low resistance means the printed graphene should perform better in all electrical applications including sensing and biosensing.

Advantage:
• Unprecedented low-resistance properties
• Increased flexibility of circuitry
• Process requires only off-the-shelf equipment
• No high temperature heating
• Compatible with various base materials
Application:
Flexible circuit production
