This graphene-based temperature sensor is the ideal thermometer for large area sensing with fast response and low power consumption. Its graphene ultrathin layer works as a resistance temperature detector (RTD). The sensor is thin and lightweight and it features excellent chemical stability. It provides temperature data on the basis of averaging or mapping.
This technology is suitable for (but not limited to) the following applications:
Some industries that this technology can be applied to are:
When compared with conventional sensors, this graphene sensor technology is also interesting for those applications where one needs to detect, e.g. local overheating of device that does not have metal (or well-heat-conductive) surface. Here, a conventional sensor might fail as it measures in one particular place and as opposed to direct-surface measurement of large areas with graphene sensor.
