Among the unusual properties of graphene, one of the most exciting and least understood is the additional degree of freedom experienced by electrons.
It is now feasible to make a prized material for spintronic devices and semiconductors—monolayer graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edges.
In what could prove to be a significant advance in fabricating new technologies, scientists discovered a new self-assembly mechanism that surprisingly drives negatively charged molecules to clump together to form islands ...
Disposable, ultrafast optical humidity sensors provide better moisture control for manufacturing and storage
A*STAR researchers have designed a low-cost, stable and ultrafast responsive sensor that is easy to manufacture, overcoming the challenge of producing a simple, fast and highly sensitive version.
Graphene oxide has been hailed as a veritable wonder material; when incorporated into nanocellulose foam, the lab-created substance is light, strong and flexible, conducting heat and electricity quickly and efficiently.
A major Chinese investment in graphene research plans to deliver lighter, better performing aircraft and high-speed trains.
A highly sensitive chemical sensor based on Raman spectroscopy and using nitrogen-doped graphene as a substrate was developed by an international team of researchers working at Penn State. In this case, doping refers to introducing ...
Adapting an old trick used for centuries by both metalsmiths and pastry makers, a team of researchers at MIT has found a way to efficiently create composite materials containing hundreds of layers that are just atoms thick ...
