Engineers develop flexible, water-repellent graphene circuits for washable electronics


January 23, 2018

Jonathan Claussen and the nanoengineers in his research group continue to find new ways to use graphene printing technology. A new research paper describes how they're treating printed graphene with lasers to create electronic circuits that repel water. That could lead to washable electronics and better biological sensors.
