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...

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...

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...

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...

Corundum is the crystalline form of aluminium oxide and one of the rock-forming minerals. Corundum is naturally clear, but can have different colors when impurities are added. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red, while all other colors are called sapphire. The word corundum comes from the Hindi kurand. The oxygen atoms in corundum are arranged in a hexagonal close-packing, with the smaller aluminium atoms occupying 2/3 of the octahedral gaps. The coordination of the...
