Graphene-Laced Silly Putty Creates Sensors

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
By infusing silly putty (polysilicone) with graphene, researchers in AMBER — the Science Foundation Ireland-funded materials science research center at Trinity College Dublin — have produced an extremely sensitive sensor they call “G-putty.” They found that when the graphene was added, the silly putty was able to conduct electricity and became very sensitive to deformation and impact.
