Laser Induced Graphene: New Sensing Applications

Robert Barber, Sarah Cameron, Amy Devine, P Papakonstantinou, J Davis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The application of Laser Induced Graphene (LIG) to a multitude of sensing applications is outlined. A discussion of the material origins and the intrinsic properties that make it optimal for sensing is followed by analyses of exemplar motion, chemical and biological sensors from the literature. The rapid growth of research output on LIG sensors is warranted due to the remarkable capabilities of such a cost effective and easily manufactured substrate. Subject to standardization of manufacturing, LIG may achieve commercial viability where prior graphene based materials have fallen short.
