Q&A with ME Professor Xinwei Wang on New NSF grant to manufacture novel graphene aerogel-based photon sensors

Explain to us what you are examining for this recent NSF grant you received. This project is to design and manufacture micro-size bolometers that are based on graphene aerogel (GP). GP is a very light material, whose density can be much less than that of air. GP has a very low thermal conductivity, is flexible, … Continue reading Q&A with ME Professor Xinwei Wang on New NSF grant to manufacture novel graphene aerogel-based photon sensors
