Smart World and its demand for connectivity are swaying the sensors market globally. Technology advancements in sensor technology are also rampant to loop new applications and markets.Graphene sensors are showing great potential with a range of abilities.

Now, a new sensor based on graphene is known to rejig the biosensing and defense industries. Dubbed as Grolltex Sensor, the multi-modal super sensor design is made of a single layer of graphene.

Grolltex’s sensor was recently granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The company claims it is the smallest, most sensitive sensor in the world.

The patent covered sensor has little to no signal drift when exposed to extreme levels of heat and can be discreetly layered into the skins of airplanes and other high-stress vehicles, or even buildings and bridges. This means the sensor can be used to measure and detect micro stress in real time at levels not currently possible with our latest sensing technologies.

Graphene is likely to be a dominant material across all industries. Even wearables are incorporating the use of this material, with the first graphene running shoes slated to hit the market next year.

“We have had strong interest in the sensor design from several large, multinational corporations and we are currently evaluating the possibility of development agreements with the potential partners in strategic areas,” said Draa.

This graphene sensor patent, with its vast applications, will undoubtedly spike interest in industrial corporations. Graphene sensors are showing great potential with a range of abilities.
