Claire Senger*, Xiao Fan, James Nicolas Pagaduan*, Xiaoyu Zhang, Jinglei Ping and Reika Katsumata* publish a paper in the journal Small entitled 'Defect Healing in Graphene via Rapid Thermal Annealing with Polymeric "Nanobandage"'. Researchers discuss a new method of defect healing in graphene via nitrogen doping utilizing polymer-assisted rapid thermal annealing (RTA). A nitrogen-rich polymeric "nanobandage" is directly coated onto the graphene and rapidly burned away to dope the graphene without leaving behind a residue, and offers ~85% conductivity recovery.
