Direct laser writing of graphene electrodes is an emerging research field for the rapid fabrication of two-dimensional carbon electronic materials with wide applications, ranging from supercapacitors and batteries to sensors, electrocatalysts, actuators, etc. Many types of carbon-containing raw materials can be converted to graphene by one-step laser scribing, without complicated chemical synthesis routines, using a variety of lasers. This perspective categorizes the principles of direct laser writing of graphene, according to the different types of raw materials, different types of lasers, and different applications. The future directions of laser synthesized graphene are also discussed.
