Single-layer graphene (SLG) was demonstrated to emit sound. The sound emission from SLG had a significant flat frequency response in the wide ultrasound range from 20 kHz to 50 kHz. SLG can produce a sound pressure level (SPL) as high as 95 dB at a distance of 5 cm with a sound frequency of 20 kHz. The SPL value is among the highest reported to date for sound-emitting devices (SEDs) based on the thermoacoustic effect. A theoretical model was established to analyze the sound emission from SLG. The theoretical results are in good agreement with the experimental results. Conventional acoustic devices with a large size can be reduced to the nano-scale by using this novel SLG-SED material. It has the potential to be widely used in speakers, buzzers, earphones, ultrasonic transducer, etc.
