Arkansas Business reports Alliance Rubber of Hot Springs recently signed an agreement with University of Sussex professor Alan Dalton to study how the compound graphene could be used in rubber products. Alliance Rubber intends to help determine exactly how this …

electronicsElectrons in Graphene can become superballistic which start a new wave of physics

No Comments
In some high-quality materials, like graphene, electrons can travel micron distances without scattering, improving the conductivity by orders of magnitude. This so-called ballistic regime, imposes the maximum possible conductance for any normal metal, which is defined by the Landauer-Buttiker formalism. …
