We have developed methods of CVD processing which are suitable for the industrial production of graphene foam. By optimizing the parameters of CVD growth and choosing the proper nickel support structure, we have tuned the graphene foams overall porosity, aspect ratio, and density; this allows for better mechanical stability and electrical conductivity, improving the graphene foams performance. To optimize graphene foam’s energy storage capabilities, we have chemically modified the surface of the graphene foam. With these advancements, graphene foam is on the fast track to be used in commercial applications. The report will be on the advancements we have made in scaling up production of graphene foams.
