INTRODUCTION The field of graphene research is quickly developing due to graphene’s unique physical, electrical and thermal properties. [1] Its performance in the lab has garnered it a lot of attention from the scientific community. Therefore, having the ability to cut graphene sheets precisely became an important goal in developing the correct shapes needed for […]
