Porous, 3-D forms of graphene developed at MIT can be 10 times as strong as steel but much lighter
Jan 06, 2017
A team of researchers at MIT has designed one of the strongest lightweight materials known, by compressing and fusing flakes of graphene, a two-dimensional form of carbon. The new material, a sponge-like configuration with ...
Milestone in graphene production
Jan 03, 2017
For the first time, it has been possible to produce functional OLED electrodes from graphene. The process was developed by Fraunhofer researchers together with partners from industry and research. The OLEDs can, for example, ...
Graphene able to transport huge currents on the nano scale
Dec 21, 2016
New experiments have shown that it is possible for extremely high currents to pass through graphene, a form of carbon. This allows imbalances in electric charge to be rapidly rectified.
First use of graphene to detect cancer cells
Dec 19, 2016
What can't graphene do? You can scratch "detect cancer" off of that list.
Carbon dots dash toward 'green' recycling role
Dec 16, 2016
Graphene quantum dots may offer a simple way to recycle waste carbon dioxide into valuable fuel rather than release it into the atmosphere or bury it underground, according to Rice University scientists.
Ground-breaking production method could accelerate worldwide 'graphene revolution'
Dec 14, 2016
An innovative new cheap and simple mass production technique, developed by the University of Exeter, is set to open up the global potential of the 'wonder' material graphene.
Nano-calligraphy on graphene
Dec 08, 2016
Scientists at The University of Manchester and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have demonstrated a method to chemically modify small regions of graphene with high precision, leading to extreme miniaturisation of chemical ...
World's first gas sensor to apply a new principle for graphene use
Dec 05, 2016
Fujitsu Laboratories today announced the world's first successful development of an exquisitely sensitive gas sensor based on a new principle that takes advantage of graphene, a material in which carbon atoms are arranged ...
Making flawless graphene coatings
Nov 29, 2016
Graphene, the ultra-thin wonder material just a single carbon atom in thickness, holds the promise of such impressive applications as wear-resistant, friction-free coatings. But first manufacturers have to be able to produce ...
