No Comments
Graphene can provide disruptive advances in over 11 major areas from conductive inks, flexible electronics, spintronics, valleytronics, stronger materials, and much more. A billion euro project to accelerate graphene commercialization has provided an updated 345 roadmap that is an overview …

grapheneStrained graphene for 25000 Tesla fields for table top free electron lasers and valleytronics

No Comments
Researchers are making progress to tuning and creating strained graphene where they want. This could lead to valleytronics and ultratiny free electron lasers and other applications. Strained graphene can create pseudo magnetic fields of 25,000 tesla. This is about 1000 …

grapheneGraphene confines light to one atom to enable ultra small optical switches, detectors and sensors

No Comments
Researchers have been able to confine light down to a space one atom, the smallest possible. This will pave the way to ultra-small optical switches, detectors and sensors. Light can function as an ultra-fast communication channel, for example between different …

computersTowards large-scale microchips with graphene

No Comments
The union of graphene with semiconductors and dielectric insulators allows the development of electronic circuits. European scientists, taking part in the 2Dfun project, have found innovative ways to manufacture this triple layered product on an industrial scale. Beyond graphene, there …

commercializationGraphene in shoes for more comfort and heat regulation

No Comments
The ability of graphene to add functionality to common objects has been exploited in a new product on the market: footwear with better thermal properties. Developed by Graphene Flagship partners Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy, in collaboration with FADEL, a …

buildingsGraphene reinforced concrete is twice as strong and four times more water resistant

No Comments
Experts from the University of Exeter have developed a pioneering new technique that uses nanoengineering technology to incorporate graphene into traditional concrete production. The new composite material, which is more than twice as strong and four times more water resistant …

commercializationRoll-to-roll chemical vapor deposition system makes long sheets of high quality graphene

No Comments
MIT has combined a roll-to-roll approach — a common industrial approach for continuous processing of thin foils — with the common graphene-fabrication technique of chemical vapor deposition, to manufacture high-quality graphene in large quantities and at a high rate. The …

electronicsGraphene superlattices could be used for superconducting transistors

No Comments
Researchers created a “superlattice” of two graphene sheets stacked together — not precisely on top of each other, but rotated ever so slightly, at a “magic angle” of 1.1 degrees. The hexagonal honeycomb pattern is offset slightly, creating a precise …

grapheneGraphene Nanoribbons are 100 times brighter than previous single molecule devices

No Comments
Researchers observed a bright and narrow band emission of red light from individual graphene nanoribbons, only 7-atom-wide, at a high intensity comparable to bright light-emitting devices made from carbon nanotubes. Optical emission was up to 10 million photons per second, …
