Presentation Summary

Paragraf is paving the way towards commercially scalable graphene-based electronics devices through the use of its patented, direct-to-wafer graphene synthesis technology. The wafer-scale production of sensors, solid state electronics, solar cells and more is now possible; harnessing the full potential of graphene to realise step changes in device performance. Within 2 years Paragraf has developed and brought its first graphene device to market: a graphene magnetic Hall sensor. This sensor exhibits remarkable and unique performance aspects, which stretch beyond the capabilities of conventional Hall and other magnetic sensor technologies. An overview of this progress to date will be presented.

Company Profile (Paragraf Ltd)

Paragraf has perfected and patented a process for depositing single atom thick, two-dimensional materials, including graphene, directly onto silicon, silicon-carbide, sapphire, gallium-nitride and other semiconductor-compatible substrates. The contamination-free technology is scalable and compatible with existing electronic device manufacturing processes.
 
Serving the sensor, energy harvesting and semiconductor markets Paragraf is developing next generation electronic devices to exploit the unique properties of graphene, at wafer scale.
 
The company is now focused on commercialising its first graphene based family of sensors.
 
Based near Cambridge, U.K., Paragraf is a spin-out from the Department of Materials Science at Cambridge University..
