Graphene wheelchair potential

The Graphene wheelchair "is built using a semi-metal known as graphene, the strongest material known to man. Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel and 10 times tougher than diamond, but still incredibly flexible and ultra-lightweight. it is made up of a single...

Superlubric Behavior of Graphene

This new forcefield, termed GraFF, recreates the energy barrier that graphene flakes experience when sliding over graphene, and allows the superlubric behavior of graphene to be revealed. Prof. Peter Coveney: “Graphite is...
