Band gap in Graphene via laser technique

Graphene doesn’t naturally have a band gap but what if one could be created ? That would allow switching and allow the flow of electric current. “In 2004, researchers discovered a super thin material that is at least a 100 times stronger than steel and the...

Wearable electronics inspired by Octopus suckers

Wearable electronics graphene biosensor inspired by Octopus “suckers” sticks to both wet and dry skin. Potential uses in medical applications. “Wearable electronics that adhere to skin are an emerging trend in health sensor technology for their...

Graphene Batteries for Vehicles

Graphene batteries are starting to be integrated into next-generation electronics and vehicles. For example this Lamborghini concept uses the car body itself as part of the battery. “Thinking about mission-critical technologies, as I pen this piece my iPhone’s...

Graphene-enhanced supercapacitors outperform in tests

Graphene-enhanced supercapacitor cells from Skeleton far outperformed the other cells tested. They use curved graphene to increase the efficiency of the cells by reducing the amount of energy that is lost as heat. “A study led by John Heinzel from the US Naval...
