Graphene is a sheet of carbon one atom thick yet...

Kitchen Science: Making Graphene In A Blender
2014-04-23 12:24:52

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Graphene is a form of electrically conductive carbon being hailed as a miracle material capable of revolutionizing everything from high-end electronics to biological engineering. A new study from a large team of British and Irish researchers has described a recipe for graphene that only requires a few common household materials and a kitchen blender. The study, which was published in the journal Nature Materials, basically tacked on...

Researchers Combine Graphene And Copper To Improve Electronics
2014-03-14 14:41:35

Sean Nealon, University of California, Riverside Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics. The work was led by Alexander A. Balandin, a professor of electrical engineering at the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside and Konstantin S. Novoselov, a professor of physics at the...

Mystery Behind Water's Role In Graphene Finally Tapped
2014-02-14 07:51:46

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With a vast range of unique properties, graphene has proven itself a wonder material. Among these properties, graphene's strange love affair with water has remained a mystery until now. Graphene repels water, known as being hydrophobic. However, narrow capillaries made from graphene will vigorously suck in water, allowing for rapid permeation, that is if the water layer is the same thickness as the graphene itself—only one atom...

Development Of Alternative Manufacturing Procedures For Graphene
2013-10-02 10:30:18

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) New production method broadens the perspectives for an improved use of the "magic material" - many different forms are possible Graphene, a crystal composed of only one layer of carbon atoms arranged in a regular hexagon, is regarded as a material which is believed to be capable of performing miracles, in particular in the fields of electronics, sensor technology and display technology, but also in metrology. Only four years after the first...

The global market for graphene products is expected to be worth nearly $195 million in 2018. BCC Research projects that this market will grow to $1.3 billion by 2023, and register a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 47.1%. Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) September 29, 2013 According to a new technical market research report, Graphene: Technologies, Applications and Markets from BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com), the global market for graphene products is expected to be worth...

Graphene Super-Materials Could Be Future Of Solar Cells
2013-05-03 09:34:11

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2004, the pure carbon material known as graphene was isolated by two University of Manchester Nobel Laureates, Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov, quickly leading to the discovery of a whole new family of one-atom-thick materials. Now researchers from the University of Manchester and National University of Singapore have shown that by building multi-layered heterostructures of graphene in a three-dimensional stack,...

Graphene Patent Applications On The Rise, China In The Lead
2013-01-16 05:32:25

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A steep rise in the number of patents involving graphene, one of the thinnest, lightest, strongest and most conductive materials in the world, reveals a global race to harness the potential of this novel material. Graphene, which was identified only as recently as 2004, is harder than diamond, a single molecule thick, as flexible as rubber and much more conductive than copper, giving it tremendous potential for applications in...

UK Invests $35 Million In Graphene Commercialization Research
2012-12-29 06:00:47

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Government investments into certain private companies, sometimes derided as “picking winners and losers,” can be controversial, yet the U.K. government has stepped into the breach this week and announced that it will be investing over $35 million in an effort to commercialize graphene, a new ℠super-material´. Invented by two scientists at the University of Manchester, Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim, graphene...

Use of ‘Trailblazing’ Material For New Sensors Investigated By NASA
2012-12-06 16:43:03

NASA Tiny sensors -- made of a potentially trailblazing material just one atom thick and heralded as the “next best thing” since the invention of silicon -- are now being developed to detect trace elements in Earth´s upper atmosphere and structural flaws in spacecraft. Technologist Mahmooda Sultana, who joined NASA´s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., two years ago and has since emerged as Goddard´s go-to expert in the development of graphene-based...
