In this work the results of the characterization by digital microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and EDX of the mechanical properties of the graphite 2B deposited by the GoP - Graphite on Paper process on A4 paper substrate are presented. The different properties and network structure of the graphite film and paper chosen for the development of sensing devices are aimed at practical applications in MEMS - Micro electromechanical devices.
