Flexible electronics are destined to transform the way we manufacture and interact with electronic devices. Graphene’s high electrical conductivity and mechanical stability could prove beneficial in flexible electronic circuits. However, despite its potential, graphene is typically only produced and patterned in research environments with economic barriers hampering its use in commercial applications.

Now, a group led by Mario Hofmann at National Cheng Kung University have demonstrated an easy and scalable approach to depositing high resolution graphene patterns onto surfaces.
