Graphene MEMS outperforms silicon
Graphene can increase the sensitivity of micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) sensors by up to 100 times, according to researchers at the Swedish KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan) Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
"The advantage of using graphene membranes for piezoresistve sensors is their extreme thinness," Frank Niklaus, a professor at KTH, told EE Times. "The sensitivity of piezoresistive membrane sensors scale with reduced membrane thickness."
