Latest Andre Geim Stories
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.
Nobel prizewinner Professor Kostya Novoselov and an international team have created a "Graphene Roadmap" to show what the material could truly achieve.
Engineering faculty and students at the University of Colorado Boulder have produced the first experimental results showing that atomically thin graphene membranes with tiny pores can effectively and efficiently separate gas molecules through size-selective sieving.
Sandwiching individual graphene sheets between insulating layers in order to produce electrical devices with unique new properties, the method could open up a new dimension of physics research.
Findings could have applications in high-speed communications fields.
In a paper published this week in Science, a Manchester team lead by Nobel laureates Professor Andre Geim and Professor Konstantin Novoselov has literally opened a third dimension in graphene research.
According to a new study, membranes based on the material graphene can be used to distill alcohol.
The physical property of magnetism has historically been associated with metals such as iron, nickel and cobalt; however, graphite – an organic mineral made up of stacks of individual carbon sheets – has baffled researchers in recent years by showing weak signs of magnetism.
Graphene is one of the wonders of the science world, with the potential to create foldaway mobile phones, wallpaper-thin lighting panels and the next generation of aircraft.
