Ozden Yenigun, Elif and Toomey, Anne, 2019, Show, Exhibition or Event, GRAPHENE BASED SOFT ANTENNAS

Abstract or Description:

This research addressed graphene-based antenna fabrication and integration that exploits the flexibility and tuneable characteristic of graphene to efficiently engage with the structural, conceptual and technical possibilities offered by traditional textile making. It overcame major problems in additive antenna fabrication such as the need to use metallic components as the conductive and radiant element which quickly becoming corroded, and also bringing high material costs. These antennas offer new material solutions for invisibly and unobtrusively soft system integration, hence serving as a solid starting point for future research in smart garments capable of wireless communication. The visitors had a chance to touch and
see these communicating fabric swatches and watch the videos regarding the fabrication involving the combination of methods from material science, textile design, electronics, and textile engineering how to make and craft these fabrics.
