Graphene as a Solid Liquid Interface

The Berkeley team explored the interaction of graphene as a solid liquid interface for water and a common battery electrolyte fluid. “How a liquid interacts with the surface of a solid is important in batteries and fuel cells, chemical production, corrosion...

Bending Multilayer Graphene

Bending multilayer graphene – “When you bend it a lot, it acts like a stack of papers where the atomic layers can slide past each other.” “New research by engineers at the University of Illinois combines atomic-scale experimentation with...

Graphene Future Applications

Graphene promised a world of future applications, including super-fast electronics, ultra-sensitive sensors and incredibly durable materials. “The wonder material graphene — an array of interlinked carbon atoms arranged in a sheet just one atom thick — promised...

Graphene-based Antennae for NASA Space Programs

Graphene-based antennae to be used in NASA space programme. This project is also relevant for consumer electronics, medical, smartphone technology and aerospace. “Dr Maggie Chen, associate professor of engineering at Texas State University, has spent the last 15...

Infrared Detector for Night Vision

The trick in developing the new highly sensitive, but uncooled infrared detector was engineering the two-dimensional nanomaterial graphene into a material that can carry an electric current. The device is not commercially available but could one day be integrated into...

Graphene Detector for 3D Imaging of the Universe

A graphene detector in future telescopes could greatly supercharge their abilities to reveal more of the hidden universe. This has potential for astronomy. “Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have discovered that along with its many...
