A Deeper Understanding Of Graphene’s Electrical Properties On An Atomic Level
2014-07-23 03:04:46

University of Pennsylvania Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. Now, for the first time, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have used a cutting-edge microscope to study the relationship...

Boron 'Buckyball' Discovered By Researchers
2014-07-14 03:29:25

By Kevin Stacey, Brown University The discovery 30 years ago of soccer-ball-shaped carbon molecules called buckyballs helped to spur an explosion of nanotechnology research. Now, there appears to be a new ball on the pitch. Researchers from Brown University, Shanxi University and Tsinghua University in China have shown that a cluster of 40 boron atoms forms a hollow molecular cage similar to a carbon buckyball. It's the first experimental evidence that a boron cage...

research outlines the story of soot
2014-07-02 03:36:39

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) and the University of Hawaii have uncovered the first step in the process that transforms gas-phase molecules into solid particles like soot and other carbon-based compounds. The finding could help combustion chemists make more-efficient, less-polluting fuels and help materials scientists fine-tune their carbon nanotubes and graphene sheets for faster, smaller...

Stanford School of Engineering Computer simulation shows how to make a crystal that would toggle like a light switch between conductive and non-conductive structures; this could lead to flexible electronic materials and enable a cell phone to be woven into a shirt Do not fold, spindle or mutilate. Those instructions were once printed on punch cards that fed data to mainframe computers. Today's smart phones process more data, but they still weren't built for being shoved into back...
