Graphene Films & Foils
The graphene foils are made with the graphene platelets tightly packed in the film.
Long Lifetime: Lifetimes exceeding 7,500 µA-hrs have been routinely documented on some PETtrace cyclotrons (depending on operating parameters).
Custom Size: Foils are cut, packaged, and delivered to customer specifications. ANI offers graphene films with diameters up to 13 cm (up to 26cm diameter available on request). Area densities of 0.1 to 1.0 mg/cm2 are standard. Higher mass density foils are available. Thicker foils are made with mixture of graphene and carbon nanotubes.
Competitive pricing: Large order discount rates available.
Electrical Resistance: Measured sheet resistance of graphene films is in the range of 13 – 260 Ohm/sq and is linearly dependent on area mass density.
Thermal Conductivity: The in-plane thermal conductivity of the graphene foil sample was found to be 1480 W/mK. Measurements of thermal conductivity were made using the ASTM E1461 laser flash method by NETZSCH Instruments North America LLC. The following parameters were used for the calculation of the thermal conductivity: bulk density of the graphene film sample 1.55 g/cm3, temperature 25°C and specific heat Cp 0.73 J/gK. The measured thermal diffusivity is 1308 mm2/s.
Foil Mounting Options: Stripper foils can be delivered as bare foils, cut to size, or mounted on carbon or aluminum frames to customer specifications.
Mechanical Strength: The calculated ultimate tensile strength of as-prepared films is 167±16 MPa. Samples of graphene films were tested for tensile strength using a standard pull test. The average sample size was approximately 2 cm x 2 cm and the measured tension force was on the order of 10 N.
Density: The graphene foil density is approximately 1.5 – 2.0 g/cm3, which is comparable to the density of bulk graphite being 2.2 g/cm3.
