We continued research into making devices with graphene. In 2012, I proposed fabricating a gas detector using graphene, a two dimensional semimetal composed of a sheet of graphitic carbon. Graphene is an ideal test material for a gas detector because the thinness of graphene makes it incredibly sensitive to changes in the gas environment. In addition, graphene can withstand elevated temperatures. Sensors made of graphene therefore have the potential to be useful for detecting automobile exhaust.
