Novel graphene nanostructure: modelling, synthesis, fabrication and characterisation

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • Graphene is a new class of carbon nanostructure that could be a key material for the next generation of electronics. Chemical conversion of graphite provides a new approach to large-scale production of graphene. This multidisciplinary project aims to develop new methods to model, analyse, fabricate, and characterise chemically converted graphene. A new class of graphene nanostructures with tuneable electrical/optical properties will be created by controlled chemical conversion or modification of graphene. Potential applications of these new nanostructures in sensors, field-effect transistors and as transparent electrodes for solar cells and light emitting devices will be explored.
