Summary

A decade ago, researchers Geim and Novoselov amaze the world with the discovery of a material formed with a single layer of atoms: graphene.

This material is very versatile due to their exceptional properties, such as electrical, optical or mechanical and is proposed to be used in a wide range of applications ranging from flexible electronic s to energy storage. In all these applications is offered the promise of significantly improving existing products and the possibility of designing materials and devices with new functionality.

But the reality is different, since there is only on the market a small number of products based on graphene. This is because the main problem for the introduction of grapheme in industrial applications is the lack of methods for the large scale production of graphene materials.

Furthermore, the development of graphene materials and devices is more mature in some areas, such as conductive inks or flexible electronics, but in other is in a more conceptual stage, such as biomedicine and aerospace technologies.

In this seminar, the fundamental properties of graphene that are relevant to actual industrial applications are reviewed, and the opportunities and challenges of new applications based on graphene technologies are analyzed.
