Scientists demonstrate efficient energy transfer mechanism for graphene sensors and transistors

Aalto University researchers have demonstrated a new type of scattering process to provide an efficient energy transfer mechanism in graphene.

This finding advances the development of extremely sensitive graphene sensors as well as graphene transistors. The results, published online in Nano Letters on May 27, were partly funded by European Union via project RODIN (www.FP7rodin.eu).
