It's time for "transparent graphene microelectrodes to see how cells chit chat" 😁
Let go! 🍀🙂🤩
How does that work?
(left to right) graphene on Cu - see the hexagons? Yep, thats 2 or 3 layers of carbon atoms arranged in hexagonal lattice.
The bright stops are defects in graphene cause hey, nothings perfect. 🤪
How cool is that?! 😁
Transparency of these graphene microelectrodes can be super duper useful for Retina research.
Here 👇 is one such MEA about to host a mouse retina.
The bear being the cells and snow the microelectrode array.
Feel free to use this knowledge to enlighten your favourite people.
I hope you learnt something new and remember how the heart and brain cells look like. 🤪
