Korean researchers are using modified graphene to produce 3D nanopatterns that can be transferred onto other substrates to make flexible electronic devices. The process uses block copolymer (BCP) self-assembly on a chemically modified graphene (CMG) substrate to produce irregular, flexible and even...
