Blood Cell sized robots could be mass-produced using a new method developed by researchers at MIT. Nature Materials – Autoperforation of 2D materials for generating two-terminal memristive Janus particles Syncells (short for synthetic cells), might eventually be used to monitor …

grapheneElectrons that behaves like light in twelve-sided graphene quasicrystal

0
Electrons that behave like light are Dirac electrons. Dirac electrons have been in monolayer graphene and now they are seen in twelve-sided graphene quasicrystal. They have useful and unique electronic properties which are useful for probing new physics and they …

carbonFirst Nanotubes, then Graphene and now new form of carbon schwarzites

0
UC Berkeley chemists have proved that three carbon structures recently created by scientists in South Korea and Japan are in fact the long-sought schwarzites, which researchers predict will have unique electrical and storage properties like those now being discovered in …

carbon nanotubesCarbon nanotube reinforced graphene is twice as tear resistant

0
Fracture-resistant “rebar graphene” is more than twice as tough as pristine graphene. Rebar graphene, developed by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour in 2014, uses carbon nanotubes for reinforcement. Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon. On the two-dimensional …

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

0
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

0
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

0
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 …
