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...

Lithium sulphur batteries reach new potential

Lithium sulphur batteries offer a theoretical energy density more than five times that of lithium ion batteries. Researchers used a graphene sponge-like aerogel to enable this. “Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently unveiled a...

Spintronics for Quantum Computing

Spintronics is essential in creating low-power operations that can also work as part of quantum computing. The design has been built with a reduce graphene oxide layer. This allows scientists to enhance spin injection, and fine tune the conductivity of the electrons...

Cheaper supercapacitors challenge

Cheaper supercapacitors that use metal transition oxides may prove a price point challenge to the carbon-graphene mix more typically used. Driving down mass production costs is a challenge for graphene when compared to this new research. Researchers at Universiti...

Wuxi Graphene Film’s CVD heating films

Wuxi Graphene film is “highly flexible and even rollable. In fact that’s one of the main advantages of this new technology compared to other heating films”. “Review: China-based Wuxi Graphene Film (owned by Grahope New Materials and The Sixth...
