Researchers at Australia's Griffith University developed a new method that can be used for mass production of low-cost graphene devices. The new method includes a low-temperature synthesis method by using a metal alloy catalyst which produces a high-quality graphene film.
The researchers also developed a strategy for patterning the graphene - by growing it on a pre-patterned Silicon Carbide (SiC) layer. They are now looking for industrial partners to commercialize the new technology.
It seems that Australia is slowly becoming a leader in graphene research. In the past few months we heard about graphene research and commercialization programs from Monash University and Bora Bora, Valence and the University of Adelaide, Anstro institute and Deakin University and the University of Wollongong.
