After three years (2017-2020), the GRACE project is successfully closed. The final output included 9 published papers with 3 more under consideration, as well as numerous inputs to industry and standardisation bodies. This final newsletter sums up the achievements of the project.… Read More

Newsletter No. 4 includes a preview of the contents of the upcoming Good Practice Guides on the electrical characterisation of graphene, which will be published within April; reference to the new Scientific Reports paper published Taiwindows by the consortium; highlights (with a nice plot!) of the comparison of contact and non-contact methods for the characterisation of large-area CVD… Read More

The 83 IED General Meeting took place in Shanghai on 21-25 October. At the meeting, the IED/TC 113 (Nanotechnology for electrotechnical products and systems) Working Group 8 (graphene related materials) discussed several inputs that the GRACE consortium gave to the committee. The GRACE partners have strongly contributed to the drafts of new IEC Technical Specifications,… Read More

Graphene is being extensively investigated by industry as a potential new material for electronics. For graphene to be adopted as an electronic industrial product, accurate and reproducible characterization methods adapted to the 2D nature of graphene are crucial. But such electrical characterization methods for graphene are presently underdeveloped; and guidelines for the proper implementation of… Read More

The GRACE project, now at month 18 of its span, is making possible accurate and reproducible electrical characterisation methods suitable for graphene, both as test samples and in production lines. Key Control Characteristics (KCC) of CVD graphene samples from cm- to wafer-size samples have already been successfully measured and cross-validated by the partners. This year… Read More
