Data corresponds to the demonstration of photonic curing of graphene/nitrocellulose patterns, in which the exothermic decomposition of nitrocellulose modifies and aids the annealing reaction. Few-layer graphene flakes are produced by liquid-phase exfoliation and stabilized by nitrocellulose to formulate inks suitable for direct write printing. Graphene thin films exhibit high conductivity and mechanical flexibility following the photonic annealing step, along with a porous microstructure. Characterization of the materials using Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning...
