Graphene Laboratories and CVD Equipment Corporation Offer Single-layer CVD Graphene Products

(Nanowerk News) CVD Equipment Corporation and Graphene Laboratories, Inc., today launched a new line of Chemical Vapor Deposited (CVD) Graphene products. These products include large-area single layer graphene films grown on copper foils or copper-coated wafers. This is the first truly two dimensional material that has become commercially available on the market. CVD Equipment Corporation will manufacture single-layer CVD grown graphene based materials and products and Graphene Laboratories, Inc. will provide marketing of the new products with the CVDGraphene™ trademark for sale worldwide.
Graphene is a novel carbon nanomaterial film that is only one atom thick and has unique electrical and mechanical properties as well as supreme stability and durability. CVD grown Graphene is projected to be used for production of Graphene-based electronics, sensors, microelectro- mechanical systems (MEMS), solar batteries, etc. The commercial availability of truly two-dimensional graphene film easily compatible with the scaling requirements of the semiconductor industry, leads to a new generation of graphene-based computers and electronics. In particular, this technology could result in the development of high-frequency computer chips with greatly reduced power consumption.
"We are excited to offer single-layer CVD grown Graphene products. We have received many requests regarding this product from researchers and engineers from around the globe. Finally, it has become commercially available." said Dr. Elena Polyakova, President and CEO of Graphene Laboratories, Inc. "We truly believe this is a critical milestone on the road of largescale production of graphene-based products."
CVD's Equipment Corporation's Application Laboratory provides process development and material growth services for a wide range of advanced nanomaterials, i.e. Carbon Nanotubes, Silicon and other Nanowires, CVD Graphene, Transparent Conducting Oxide (TCO) materials and other CVD processes. It hosts a range of CVD research and production equipment that will be utilized for CVD Graphene production.
"CVD Equipment Corporation is focusing on enabling the commercialization of tomorrow's technologies," says Karlheinz Strobl, VP of Business Development for CVD Equipment Corporation. "By leveraging the process development and manufacturing capabilities of our Application Laboratory and by collaborating with Graphene Laboratories, Inc. on CVD Graphene based product developments we believe we can shorten the time to market for a range of already existing and future "nanoenabled" products. Together, we are able to offer and ship a growing array of CVD Graphene products. With the newly developed CVDGraphene™ manufacturing process on copper foils we can now support a larger base of customer requests working in the electronic, solar, bio and medical fields."
