LIGC Application was an Israel-based producer of Laser-Induced Graphene filters (LIG). LIGC Application is at the forefront of laser-induced graphene commercialization with patented technology. In 2013, laser-induced graphene was first derived from a plastic substrate by Professor James Tour of Rice University, and LIGC has based its work on this technology.
The company went out of business in 2022.
LIGC Application developed a technology for producing and patterning porous graphene foam using a commercially available laser in ambient temperature. The foam was conductive, flexible, and antimicrobial. The company focused on an active air filtering system that it developed following the COVID-19 pandemic.
In September 2020, LIGC raised $3 Million is series A funding.
