Electrical Conductivity of Graphene Gets A Boost

The electrical conductivity of graphene can potentially be boosted by a new material arrangement developed by researchers in Switzerland. “The material graphene already is well known for being versatile for various uses due to its small size, light weight, and...

Green Graphene Breaks down Greenhouse Gas

What if a kind of green graphene could be used to produce useful materials like electronic inks, polymers, metal composites and coatings by breaking methane gas? That would be significant if it was a scalable process which is what the news from company Goodfellow is...

Graphene coating to reduce battery fire risk

A graphene coating used to “wrap” a lithium battery can stop oxygen from escaping and this could prevent lithium battery fires. Graphene sheets are impermeable to oxygen atoms. Without the oxygen – combustion risk is reduced. “Lithium batteries...

Deep learning to speed up graphene research

Deep learning is being applied to input a few thousand known combinations of graphene structures and their properties into models to speed up materials research. “Discovering how atoms—such as a single layer of carbon atoms found in graphene, one of the...

Silicon-Graphene Devices for Photonics

Silicon-graphene devices for photonics could enable faster communications between devices and users. By combining silicon with graphene the devices will work faster. “If you use a smartphone, laptop, or tablet, then you benefit from research in photonics, the...

CRISPR-Chip uses graphene

A new CRISPR-Chip device with electronic transistors made from graphene can detect specific genetic mutations in a matter of minutes. This means that genetic testing could be performed in a doctor’s office or field work setting without having to send a sample off to a...
