I am doing a research and experiment on using Graphene oxide for deicing. My purpose is to coat graphene oxide on the surface of the ship in the north and south pole where large amount of large size ice cubes and icebergs are present. So when voltage is applied to it, it can generate a large amount of heat to melt the ice but the amount of heat must not be significant enough to vaporize the water to steam.
So, the problem is: As you know graphene oxide has a very high resistance. So there must be some process or material that can enhance the conductivity of the graphene oxide. What is it? In other words, is there a process that can enhance the conductivity of graphene?
