Thin-film Battery For Portable, Wearable Electronics
2014-04-28 03:28:04

Mike Williams, Rice University A Rice University laboratory has flexible, portable and wearable electronics in its sights with the creation of a thin film for energy storage. Rice chemist James Tour and his colleagues have developed a flexible material with nanoporous nickel-fluoride electrodes layered around a solid electrolyte to deliver battery-like supercapacitor performance that combines the best qualities of a high-energy battery and a high-powered supercapacitor without the...

How Can Graphene Sheets Be Utilized In Real-world Devices?
2014-04-25 03:15:43

National Science Foundation Fundamental research in phonon scattering helps researchers design graphene materials for applications Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and...

Graphene-Based Spaser Could Lead To Printable Smartphones
2014-04-25 04:23:53

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a new report in the journal ACS Nano, a team of Australian engineers have modelled a kind of laser called a “spaser” that would allow for the creation of smartphones so small and flexible – they could be printed on a t-shirt. Simply put, spasers are nanoscale lasers that emit a beam of light via the vibration of free electrons, as opposed to the relatively space-consuming beam of a traditional laser. While spasers,...

Rice University lab makes hybrid nanotube-graphene material that promises to simplify manufacturing Carbon nanotubes are reinforcing bars that make two-dimensional graphene much easier to handle in a new hybrid material grown by researchers at Rice University. The Rice lab of chemist James Tour set nanotubes into graphene in a way that not only mimics how steel rebar is used in concrete but also preserves and even improves the electrical and mechanical qualities of both. The...

Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University Professor Stephan Irle of the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (WPI-ITbM) at Nagoya University and co-workers at Kyoto University, Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL), and Chinese research institutions have revealed through theoretical simulations that the molecular mechanism of carbon nanotube (CNT) growth and hydrocarbon combustion actually share many similarities. In studies using acetylene molecules (ethyne; C2H2,...
