Inkjet-printed graphene electrodes may lead to low-cost, large-area, possibly foldable devices
Friction almost vanishes in microscale graphite
Scientists take steps toward creating artificial graphene
Graphene enhances many materials, but leaves them wettable
Graphene is the thinnest material known to science. The nanomaterial is so thin, in fact, water often doesn't even know it's there.
Researchers develop method to inkjet print highly conductive, bendable layers of graphene
(Phys.org) —Imagine a bendable tablet computer or an electronic newspaper that could fold to fit in a pocket.
Physicists create carbon magnetism by removing atoms from graphite
New light-controlled gel makes big strides in soft robotics (w/ Video)
(Phys.org) —Inspired by the way plants grow toward light sources, a phenomenon known as phototropism, bioengineers from the University of California, Berkeley have created a hydrogel that could be manipulated ...
How Perfect Can Graphene Be?
Researchers develop new technique to scale up production of graphene micro-supercapacitors
(Phys.org)—While the demand for ever-smaller electronic devices has spurred the miniaturization of a variety of technologies, one area has lagged behind in this downsizing revolution: energy-storage units, ...
Researchers find simple and cheap way to mass-produce graphene nanosheets
Mixing a little dry ice and a simple industrial process cheaply mass-produces high-quality graphene nanosheets, researchers in South Korea and Case Western Reserve University report.
Producing graphene layers using crystallization
New nanotube fibers have unmatched combination of strength, conductivity, flexibility (w/ video)
(Phys.org)—Rice University's latest nanotechnology breakthrough was more than 10 years in the making, but it still came with a shock. Scientists from Rice, the Dutch firm Teijin Aramid, the U.S. Air Force ...
Durable carbon nanotube sensors can be etched with mechanical pencils
Carbon nanotubes offer a powerful new way to detect harmful gases in the environment. However, the methods typically used to build carbon nanotube sensors are hazardous and not suited for large-scale production.
One-molecule-thick material has big advantages: Researchers produce complex circuits from molybdenum disulfide
The discovery of graphene, a material just one atom thick and possessing exceptional strength and other novel properties, started an avalanche of research around its use for everything from electronics to ...
