Our key graphene technology is receiving considerable interest from firms including Apple, Samsung and even Google.
Graphene is a one-moleculethick layer of graphite that is 20 times stronger than diamond and conducts electricity 20 times better than copper.
Hasan's method, developed at the University's Nanoscience Centre, works by suspending tiny particles of graphene in a 'carrier' solvent mixture, which is added to conductive water-based ink formulations.
He added: "We see the use of graphene as a global opportunity and we want to set ourselves up as a world leader in the market.
The researchers confirmed that the graphene was magnetized by exposing it to an external magnetic field.
This joint effort between Plastic Logic and the CGC was also recently boosted by a grant from the UK Technology Strategy Board, within the 'realising the graphene revolution' initiative.
Graphene is also the thinnest material on Earth, according to (http://www.
The results presented in the new research represent another step forward for the graphene industry in terms of realising graphene's potential in the composites market, and further highlights that functionalisation via plasma is the key process.
The key graphene products produced from the Campoona graphite were:
By formulating an inkjet-printable ink based on graphene, we now have an inexpensive and scalable path for exploiting these properties in real-world technologies," he added.
