The aim of the work of this thesis is to develop novel technologies for functional micro- and nanofluidic devices, as well as exploring the functionality of first examples of such devices. The research thereby is mainly centered round graphene,and involved its synthesis, device fabrication, raman spectroelectrochemistry and transmembrane transport experiments. As such, this work represents a step in the development of real-life applications of this unique material. In addition, the use of magnetic materials is explored for functional lab-on-a-chip systems. In both cases the use of cleanroom technology is indispensable for the developments.
