Graphene rubber bands could stretch limits of current healthcare
New research published today in the journal ACS Nano identifies a new type of sensor that can monitor body movements and could help revolutionise healthcare.
Neutrons investigate Einstein diffusion to support hopes for carbon nanotechnology revolution
Interest in carbon and its use in new technologies is very high right now. A lot of commercial and academic research and development is going into making nanometre sized systems out of it. In recent years ...
Research gives further insight into graphene-based electronics
Imagine a tablet device as thin as a piece of paper, folded conveniently in your pocket. Or a 3D TV that wraps around the walls of an entire room in your home. With applications that are nothing short of ...
Could hemp nanosheets topple graphene for making the ideal supercapacitor?
As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model ...
New test reveals purity of graphene: Terahertz waves used to spot contaminants
Graphene may be tough, but those who handle it had better be tender. The environment surrounding the atom-thick carbon material can influence its electronic performance, according to researchers at Rice and ...
