batteriesGraphene Still Difficult to Use and Path to Major Commercialization is Uncertain

Graphene has a lot of potential because it can be the strongest material and has many other exceptional characteristics. There has been a lot of research around the material since 2004, when Professor Sir Andre Geim and Professor Sir Kostya …

grapheneTuning Graphene Superconductivity

A Columbia University-led team has developed a new method to finely tune adjacent layers of graphene—lacy, honeycomb-like sheets of carbon atoms—to induce superconductivity. Above – Applying pressure to twisted bilayer graphene transforms the material from a metal to a superconductor. …

canadaGraphene water filtration system

Graphene Leaders Canada has its new GLC+™ WATER TECHNOLOGIES PLATFORM. The platform offers a disruptive solution to water pollution and remediation and is based on years of expertise in graphene solutions work with a keen focus in water filtration. The …

grapheneBilayer Graphene on the way to becoming a superconductor

Scientists at HZB have found evidence that double layers of graphene have a property that may let them conduct current completely without resistance. They probed the bandstructure at BESSY II with extremely high resolution ARPES and could identify a flat …

commercizationGraphene commercialized with warmer jackets and long lasting shoes

Graphene was discovered in 2010 and has super strength and many other properties. It is finally being commercialized for products with improved endurance and heat properties. Vollebak’s graphene jacket is reversible: One side contains graphene, the other lightweight nylon. To …

bloodstream robotsControlled graphene fracturing for mass production of cell sized robots

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

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

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

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 …
