Graphene nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS)

Marko Spasenovic

Graphene, with its enormous stiffness and low density, is an excellent material for nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) applications. Such applications include various types of physical, biological, and chemical sensors, all expected to have superb sensitivities, exceeding those of competing technologies. Graphene sensors and NEMS are also attractive due to their small...
