Graphene is the super material of the future. Now, though, researchers have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles in graphene and turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications.
New findings published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials reveal a new grapheme-based film that works to efficiently cool electronics.
Researchers may have created the world's thinnest light bulb. By using graphene, scientists have constructed an on-chip visible light source.
There may be a new technique to enhance graphene. Scientists have found that a winding thread of odd rings at the border of two sheets of graphene has qualities that could be valuable to manufacturers.
Forget about Kevlar; graphene may be the new bullet-proof material. Scientists have taken a new look at graphene's strength by shooting it with microbullets.
Scientists have found that by crumpling a sheet of graphene "paper," it actually takes on new properties that could be useful for creating extremely stretchable supercapacitors to store energy for flexible electronic devices.
Scientists have created a new detector that may eventually lead to a generation of devices that can peer below the surface of bodies, walls and other objects. Using graphene, scientists have constructed a prototype detector that can see a broad band of wavelengths.
Scientists may have found a way to create some of the thinnest, smallest wires ever made. Using a finely focused electron beam, researchers created flexible metallic wires only three atoms wide.
Scientists have developed a new version of "spaser" technology that could result in mobile phones that are so small, efficient and flexible, that they could be printed on your clothing.
Fabricating functional nano-devices is an ultimate goal of nanotechnology. Atomic-scale modification and sculpting of materials can enable nano-machines with wide-varying application potential in biological (medical) and chemical (trace sensing) uses.
Perfect sheets of diamond a few atoms thick appear to be possible even without the big squeeze that makes natural gems.
