Graphene Sensors Market: Introduction
Graphene is an ideal material for making sensors, since graphene has extraordinary electrical conductivity and heat resistance. It can be used in various applications, such as for making sensors, RFID, composites, research and development, functional ink, energy storing, and as polymer additive, among others. Graphene material has large surface to volume ratio. The large surface area of graphene is able to increase the surface loading of desired biomolecules and improve electrical conductivity. Hence, the graphene-based sensors are considered ideal for the sensing equipment. Graphene material also has small band gaps that are beneficial for conducting electrons between biomolecules and electrode surface, which make them highly sensitive. It has a high carrier mobility as well as density, and high thermal conductivity. All these properties are driving the global market.
Graphene material provides design possibilities in the manufacturing of sensors. They are miniaturized and sensitive as compared to other sensors material. Moreover, these sensors can work quickly and are less expensive than traditional sensors. Some graphene sensors also consists of Field Effect Transistor (FET) with a graphene channel. Graphene-based nanoelectronic devices have also been explored for their use in DNA sensors for detecting nucleobases and nucleotides, in gas sensors for detecting different gases, use in PH sensors, environmental contamination sensors, strain and pressure sensors, among others.
