Measurement for our planet

Following COP26, discover how NPL plays a key role in enabling climate action through the delivery of accurate, reliable data that supports decision making and enables low carbon innovation.

Graphene-based sensors

The large surface area of graphene means it is very sensitive to molecules that contact its surface, which makes it ideal for use in sensors. With our in-house-designed environmental chamber, we perform a variety of electrical transport measurements on sensors in a controlled atmosphere, with variable gas content , temperature and humidity . We can also run AFM based experiments in a controlled environment, to investigate how atmospheric changes affect the structural and electronic properties of quantum materials. We investigate and develop graphene-based sensors, including gas sensors to detect harmful pollutants such as NO2 , CO and CO2.

We also develop novel biosensors which could detect hepatitis biomarkers, allergens  and other disease-carrying pathogens.
