Abstract


Along with technology development, the demand for flexible, foldable, and portable electronic devices has grew over the past few years. Successful fabrication of this flexible electronic devices relying on the internal electronic components which are also flexible and lightweight. In this regard, researchers are now working on using nanomaterials which exhibit the desired electronic properties to replace the conventional electronic components. Graphene nanosheet and its derivatives are known for their intrinsic electrical behaviour. Meanwhile, they are lightweight and consume small space in any design. Hence, recent research has been focussing on fabricating flexible and foldable electronic components by attaching the graphene and its derivatives on a thin film/substrate. In fact, this idea has been realized in year 2017 on the first flexible OLED panel that uses transparent graphene-based electrode. In view of the positive impact of this nanomaterial towards future design of electronic devices, the present paper aims to provide a quick review on the current stage of research, the challenges encountered, as well as the future outlook in the use of graphene nanomaterials for designing flexible electronics. © VBRI Press.
