World's Smallest Acceleromter

World's Smallest Acceleromter
An ultra-small, graphene-based accelerometer could be a gamechanger in body sensor and navigation technologies.

Hailed as the world’s smallest accelerometer, the device was created by researchers at KTH using highly conductive graphene. According to the team, they were able to take advantage of graphene’s unique atomic-scale properties to scale down the device, resulting in a piezoresistive NEMS accelerator much smaller than current MEMS accelerometers but with the required sensitivity.

The tiny device could have applications ranging from mobile phone navigation to sensors able to track and monitor heart disease.
