Why is it important to analyse and characterize?
– All these measurements are important to guarantee the quality, repeatability, and reliability of all our products. Different applications require different grades of graphene, depending on which characteristics are to be improved. This ultimately allows us to offer our customers the best product for their individual need, in terms of quality and price.
2D fab is involved in the standardization of graphene, can you tell us more about that?
– We want to show everyone that we have a material that stands out from the rest of the market. To do so, we need to be able to describe the material properties in a quantitative way and with an agreed terminology. This is what enables a comparison between different graphene products available on the market. However, standardization is still a challenge when it comes to 2D materials, and therefore we continuously work to characterize our graphene in the best way that we can, and constantly seek to improve our methods. One of my colleagues at 2D fab, Britta Andres, is actively involved in the ISO and SIS committees for nanotechnologies, which are the Swedish and International committees for standardization.
