14:15 - 14:40
At Graphene Frontiers we are making the world a safer and healthier place with graphene. We are dedication to the commercialization of CVD graphene technology and are developing specific products and solutions for industry. Progress toward roll to roll production of graphene films is made possible via an atmospheric pressure CVD process and novel transfer method. Continuous growth has been demonstrated on a moving substrate through a CVD growth zone. This is a crucial step in the realization of a roll to roll system.
Our flagship product the Six Sensor, is a graphene biosensor and chemical sensor platform that will revolutionize sensor and detection markets such as Point of Care diagnostics. Our graphene FET based sensor devices enable highly sensitive and specific detection results in near real time. Our graphene production, transfer technology, and device fabrication processes are suited for integration into commercial processes which will allow us to scale to the demands of our markets.
Speaker Biography (Ryan Mendoza)
As Senior Vice President of Engineering at Graphene Frontiers, Ryan is leading the development and production of graphene devices for the Six Sensor product line. Development of graphene based sensors requires design and process optimization for specific detection applications. He is building the processes and team for scaling graphene device manufacturing to commercial facilities.
Ryan's experience includes developing and characterizing carbon nanomaterials including graphene and carbon nanotubes as well as the design and fabrication of graphene and carbon nanotube based biosensors. Prior to joining Graphene Frontiers, he developed exoatmospheric hardware systems as an electrical engineer at Lockheed Martin, and managed teams performing testing and failure analysis of ballistic weapons systems. Ryan holds a Master's of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania where his research focused on nanoscale electronics and semiconductor device physics. He also holds a B.S. from the University of Southern California.
Company Profile (Graphene Frontiers)
Founded in 2010, Graphene Frontiers is a developer of CVD graphene solutions and products, including its flagship product: the GF Six Sensor platform. The company is building on its core strengths in graphene growth, transfer, device fabrication and functionalization by creating specific products for industry use.
Graphene Frontiers has already vetted new technology, processes and capabilities for graphene, and they are now focused on brokering strategic partners to mass produce the "miracle material." Recently, they signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work at The Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany, NY. It's a satellite location to "ramp up" production and form relationships with regional influencers at major companies.
