Researchers at VIT University, India demonstrated the application of conjugated polymer/Graphene oxide nanocomposite for thermistor applications. The study resulted in a thermistor that boasted excellent performance, suitable for electronics and sensors. A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature, more so than in standard resistors.

Interestingly, the study showed that lower amounts of graphene oxide (0.5, 1%) loading exhibited positive temperature coefficient, and higher loading (1.5, 2%) yielded negative temperature coefficient.
