KAUST team uses laser scribing to create graphene electrodes for biosensors

(Before It's News)

Researchers at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have created graphene electrodes that function as effective biosensors, by using a laser inscribe patterns into a polymer sheet. The laser scribing technique locally heats parts of a flexible polyimide polymer to 2500 degrees Celsius or more to form carbonized patterns of patches on the surface that act as electrodes.

The black patches are about 33-micrometers thick, with a highly porous nature that allows molecules to permeate the material. Inside the patches, the graphene sheets have exposed edges that are effective at exchanging electrons with other molecules. “Graphene-based electrodes with more edge-plane sites are effectively better than those relying on carbon or carbon-oxygen sites in the plane of the material,” said a member of the KAUST team.
