Researchers at Rice University Use the XLS10MWH from Universal Laser Systems to Create Laser Induced Graphene for Water Treatment

At the annual meeting of the Nanosystems Engineering Resource Center for Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT) researchers from Rice University presented several applications for water treatment based on Laser Induced Graphene (LIG). LIG is a one-step graphene synthesis process, which was performed using an XLS platform from Universal Laser Systems equipped with a 10.6 µm wavelength CO2 laser. Among the applications featured were a superhydrophobic LIG membrane for oil/water separation, an LIG based antimicrobial surface treatment and a water splitting device made with nanoparticle doped LIG.
