The new CVD-reactor “Black Magic” for the deposition of graphene at Fraunhofer IAF. In future, a cost-efficient and simplified technology will make the deposition and the transfer of graphene onto aluminum-nitride-based bandpass filters possible. Image credit: Fraunhofer IAF.
The German-based Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF plans to use graphene, the world’s thinnest material, in smart phones.
Fraunhofer plans to use the eco-friendly graphene and its impressive properties (it is 200 times harder than steel, yet six times lighter) to create an electrode for piezoelectric resonators, which are used as bandpass filters in smartphones.
