The Graphene Research Centre (GRC), National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Science and BASF will collaborate to develop the use of graphene in organic electronic devices, such as organic light emitting diodes (OLED). They want to interface graphene films with organic electronic materials for the creation of more efficient and more flexible lighting devices.

The NUS team will be responsible for the synthesis and characterization of the graphene. The researchers have already developed a patent-pending methodology for the reliable growth and transfer of high-quality graphene films onto different flexible substrates that can be used in solar cells and lighting panels. BASF develops and provides organic active materials that allow for its integration into a device, jointly with graphene films.

Dr. Kitty Cha, a graphene research scientist at BASF is managing the project, Professor Loh Kian Ping, a leading chemist at GRC and Head of the Department of Chemistry at the NUS Faculty of Science, coordinates the scientific aspects of the collaboration at NUS.
