Graphene Industry Future Outlook

“The Graphene industry is entering a new phase, a phase of growth. The industry has accumulated significant experience over the past 10-12 years to bring about this phase.   In this article, IDTechEx Research offer opinions about the recent past and future...

Superlubricity and nanotechnology possibilities

Recent advances in two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene and other 2D materials opens up the real possibility of creating atomically thin solid lubricants. “Superlubricity offers solutions to lubrication challenges faced in various nanotechnologies...

Developing 2D Materials – Russian Research

Developing 2D Materials. Graphene’s conductivity is most similar to that of metals, making graphene difficult to use in logical circuit elements. At the same time, it easily forms ripples and is unstable as a separate free film. Russian researchers have been...

Laser-induced Graphene to Generate Electricity

Laser-induced Graphene to generate electricity. Wearable devices that harvest energy from movement are not a new idea but now more practical to make. “The Rice lab of chemist James Tour has adapted laser-induced graphene (LIG) into small, metal-free devices that...

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...

Thermal Management Graphene devices in Space

The Graphene Flagship project, which is funded by the EU, has completed zero gravity experiments for new thermal management graphene devices for space applications. In May 2019, the Graphene Flagship has embarked on a new campaign for zero gravity parabolic flights to...
