Inside story: Chemical reactivity on the inner surface of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Graphene nanoribbons grow due to domino-like effect
Measuring the mass of 'massless' electrons
(Phys.org)—Individual electrons in graphene are massless, but when they move together, it's a different story. Graphene, a one-atom-thick carbon sheet, has taken the world of physics by storm—in part, ...

Tiny 'Lego brick'-style studs make solar panels a quarter more efficient
(Phys.org) —Rows of aluminum studs help solar panels extract more energy from sunlight than those with flat surfaces.
New paradigm for solar cell construction demonstrated
(Phys.org) —For solar panels, wringing every drop of energy from as many photons as possible is imperative. This goal has sent chemistry, materials science and electronic engineering researchers on a quest ...
Rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries get a boost from graphene
A nanosensor to identify vapors based on a graphene-silicon heterojunction Schottky diode
Among other carbon-based nanomaterials, graphene represents a great promise for gas sensing applications. In 2009 the detection of individual gas molecules of NO[sub]2[/sub] adsorbed onto graphene surface ...
