  • Joined nano-triangles pave the way to magnetic carbon materials

    Graphene triangles with an edge length of only a few atoms behave like peculiar quantum magnets. When two of these nano-triangles are joined, a "quantum entanglement" of their magnetic moments takes place: the structure becomes antiferromagnetic. This could be a breakthrough for future magnetic mate more

  • Pretty as a peacock: The gemstone for the next generation of smart sensors

    Scientists have taken inspiration from the biomimicry of butterfly wings and peacock feathers to develop an innovative opal-like material that could be the cornerstone of next generation smart sensors. An international team of scientists, led by the Universities of Surrey and Sussex, has developed c more

  • Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake

    Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of "magic" shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to "spin" easier in one direction. more

How to Make Graphene

Graphene is one atom thick, stronger than steel, harder than diamond and one of the most conductive materials on earth but researchers at Harvard University and around the world make this wonder material using several household items. more

Scientists pair up two stars from the world of chemistry

Many scientists consider graphene to be a wonder material. Now, a team of researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has succeeded in linking graphene with another important chemical group, the porphyrins. These new hybrid structures could also be used in the field of molecular elec ... more

Graphene: A 2D materials revolution

Graphene is a two-dimensional material made up of sheets of carbon atoms. With its combination of exceptional electrical, mechanical and thermal properties, graphene has the potential to revolutionise industries ranging from healthcare to electronics. more
