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...

Physicists Discover How To Change The Crystal Structure Of Graphene
2014-05-01 03:38:14

Daniel Stolte, University of Arizona A University of Arizona-led team of physicists has discovered how to change the crystal structure of graphene, more commonly known as pencil lead, with an electric field, an important step toward the possible use of graphene in microprocessors that would be smaller and faster than current, silicon-based technology. Graphene consists of extremely thin sheets of graphite: when writing with a pencil, graphene sheets slough off the pencil's graphite...

Not Everything About Graphene Is Good

Sean Nealon, University of California, Riverside Material that could change electronics industry is shown to be very mobile in water and likely to cause negative environmental impacts if spilled In a first-of-its-kind study of how a material some think could transform the electronics industry moves in water, researchers at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering found graphene oxide nanoparticles are very mobile in lakes or streams and therefore likely to...

Graphene Is Only As Strong As Its Weakest Link
2014-04-29 03:25:10

Mike Williams, Rice University Rice, Georgia Tech experiments determine real-world limits of two-dimensional carbon There is no disputing graphene is strong. But new research by Rice University and the Georgia Institute of Technology should prompt manufacturers to look a little deeper as they consider the miracle material for applications. The atom-thick sheet of carbon discovered this century is touted not just for its electrical properties but also for its physical strength and...

Study Identifies Path Toward Engineering Materials For Super-efficient Nanoelectronics
2014-03-20 12:14:45

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have discovered a potential way to make graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms with great promise for future electronics – superconducting, a state in which it would carry electricity with 100 percent efficiency. Researchers used a beam of intense ultraviolet light to look deep into the electronic structure of a material made of...

Atomically Thin Solar Cells

Vienna University of Technology It does not get any thinner than this: The novel material graphene consists of only one atomic layer of carbon atoms and exhibits very special electronic properties. As it turns out, there are other materials too, which can open up intriguing new technological possibilities if they are arranged in just one or very few atomic layers. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have now succeeded for the first time in creating a diode made of tungsten...
