Water-based and biocompatible 2D inks for printed electronics

1. 2. 2017 | University of Manchester | www.manchester.ac.uk

Researchers at The University of Manchester have developed a method of producing water-based and inkjet printable 2D material inks, which could bring 2D crystal heterostructures from the lab into real-world products.

Examples include efficient light detectors, and devices that are able to store information encoded in binary form which have been demonstrated, in collaboration with the University of Pisa. Graphene is the world’s first 2D material: 200 times stronger than steel, lightweight, flexible and more conductive of copper.

2D material ink

As reported in Nature Nanotechnology a team led by Professor Cinzia Casiraghi have developed a method of producing water-based and inkjet printable 2D material inks, which can be used for the fabrication of a wide range of heterostructures by fully exploiting the design flexibility offered by a simple technique such as inkjet printing.
