A team of U.S. and Chinese researchers are claiming that they have developed a new type of graphene that could prevent laptops and other electronic devices from overheating. Mechanical and electrical engineers from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of California - Riverside, along with colleagues from the University of Texas at Dallas and Xiamen University in China, have demonstrated that the thermal properties of isotopically engineered graphene far surpassed those of...

Researchers at UC Riverside continue advancements with graphene, the single-atom thick carbon crytal that was the subject of this year's Nobel Prize in physics Researchers at the UC Riverside Bourns College of Engineering have built and successfully tested an amplifier made from graphene that could lead to more efficient circuits in electronic chips, such as those used in Bluetooth headsets and toll collection devices in cars. Graphene, a single-atom thick carbon crystal, was first isolated...

Few atomic layers of graphene reveal unique thermal properties Professor Alexander Balandin and a team of UC Riverside researchers, including Chun Ning Lau, an associate professor of physics, have taken another step toward new technology that could keep laptops and other electronic devices from overheating. Balandin, a professor of electrical engineering in the Bourns College of Engineering, experimentally showed in 2008 that graphene, a recently discovered single-atom-thick carbon crystal,...
