Nanoporous graphene

High Commercial potential

Our researchers have devised an inexpensive way to grow a new kind of graphene, one with uniformly arranged pores of the same size and shape. The result is a semiconducting graphene material with a bandgap similar to that of silicon and holes specifically designed to let through certain target molecules and block others. Potential applications include in electronics, photonics, and highly selective molecular filtration and sensing systems.

This invention is patent pending. More details about it were published in Science magazine.
