Graphite-based sensor for wearables

A team of scientists has developed a next-generation, graphene-based sensing technology using innovative G-Putty material.

The researchers from Trinity College Dublin's School of Physics printed sensors that are 50 times more sensitive than the industry standard and outperform other comparable nano-enabled sensors in an important metric – flexibility.

Maximising sensitivity and flexibility without reducing performance makes the team’s technology an ideal candidate for the emerging areas of wearable electronics and medical diagnostic devices.
