2D nanosheet materials as efficient and reusable sensorsWe study atomically thin nanomaterials as potential sensors using quantum mechanical modelling of molecular adsorption. A material similar to graphene but containing carbon and nitrogen in proportion two to one (C2N) is showing great promise as a sensor of airborne molecular pollutants and molecules in biological fluids. For molecules in fluids, we have targeted sensing of sugar levels.
Electrodes lead researchers to companiesEverything from touchscreens to solar cells can be lighter, more flexible and environmentally friendly using carbon nano-based electrodes. In a new project led by Luleå University of Technology, researchers will help companies get to know the new technology.
