Scientists create wearable sensors from graphene and rubber bands

graphene-infused rubber wearable sensors

Jonathan Coleman, a professor of chemical physics at TCD along with his fellow scientists have developed a new technology that combines Graphene with rubber bands to create wearable sensors. Graphene is a very thin, nearly transparent sheet of carbon atoms that conducts heat and electricity with great efficiency. Rubber is not a good conductor of electricity, however the addition of Graphene makes them electrically conductive without degrading their mechanical properties. Therefore, this fusion of rubber bands and graphene is perfect for creating wearable sensors.
