A method to grow multi layers graphene (MLG) just by thermal annealing in an inert atmosphere is reported. A molybdenum (Mo) catalyst layer is used in combination with a solid amorphous carbon (a-C) source on top or below the Mo layer. The formation of MLG directly on top of the catalyst substrate surface is confirmed by Raman spectroscopy,...

Limitations such as lack of detected stationary signal and slow signal recovery after detection currently affect graphene-based chemi-sensors operating at room temperature. In this work, we model the behavior of a sensor in a test chamber having limited volume and simulating the environmental conditions. From this model, we mathematically derive...

According to quantum mechanics, if we keep observing a continuous variable we generally disturb its evolution. For a class of observables, however, it is possible to implement a so-called quantum nondemolition measurement: by confining the perturbation to the conjugate variable, the observable is estimated with arbitrary accuracy, or prepared...

The high aspect ratio and the porous nature of spatially oriented forest-like carbon nanotube (CNT) structures represent a unique opportunity to engineer a novel class of nanoscale assemblies. By combining CNTs and conformal coatings, a 3D lightweight scaffold with tailored behavior can be achieved. The effect of nanoscale coatings, aluminum...

Worlds first graphene-based Pirani pressure sensor is presented. Due to the decreased area and low thickness, the graphene-based Pirani pressure sensor allows for low power applications down to 0.9 mW. Using an innovative, transfer-free process, suspended graphene beams are realized. This allows for up to 100x miniaturization of the pressure...

A surface-acoustic-mode aluminum nitride (AlN) transducer is utilized to determine the type of liquid dropped on the propagation path. It is based on tracking the shrinking droplet radius and observing stagnant liquid molecules during and after the liquid evaporation process. The device configuration is suitable to test small amounts of...

In this paper we report on gas sensors based on graphene grown by Chemical Vapor Deposition at 850 °C. Mo was used as catalyst for graphene nucleation. Resistors were directly designed on pre-patterned Mo using the transfer-free process we recently developed, thus avoiding films damage during the transfer to the target substrate. Devices...
