This paper reviews the potential of graphene as a material for fabricating various types of sensors. Graphene is a monolayer of carbon atoms which exhibits some remarkable electronic and mechanical properties and many of these properties lend themselves to sensor applications. The review attempts to be comprehensive in sensor types covering chemical and electrochemical sensors, magnetic and electric field sensors, optical sensors together with mass and strain sensors. The fact that graphene offers some advantages over this entire range of sensing modalities is an indication of its versatility and importance.
