Low Cost GPS Antenna


Graphene is the single-atom-thick sheet of carbon which is incredibly strong and conductive. A radio frequency antenna using compressed graphene ink was printed by BGT Materials Limited, graphene manufacturer in the United Kingdom along with researchers from the University of Manchester.

According to researchers, performance of the antenna was well enough to be used in radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and wireless sensors.

The best news is that, antenna is flexible, environment friendly and could be cheap if produced in large amount. The results of the research were presented in the Journal Applied physics Letters from AIP Publishing.

Printable graphene is ready to be used in low-cost radio frequency applications for commercial use, said Zhirun Hu, a researcher in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester.

"The point is that graphene is no longer just a scientific wonder. It will bring many new applications to our daily life very soon," added Kostya S. Novoselov, from the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, who coordinated the project.
