Abstract

Graphene is a structure of carbon in which the carbon atoms align into a two dimensional sheet. Because the resistance of graphene changes due to the presence of electrical charges nearby, graphene has the potential to be an incredibly sensitive detector for changes within liquid environments. In recent work, it has been suggested that the mobility of charges, and thus the sensitivity of the graphene sensor, is diminished when electrolytes are placed on top of the graphene. We investigate these claims.

Comments

This research was conducted as part of a Linfield College Student-Faculty Collaborative Research Grant in 2016, funded by the Office of Academic Affairs.

Student collaborators were Troy Taylor and Agatha Ulibarri.
