  • Magnetic field turns handed superconductor into liquid crystal-like nematic state

    Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg and RWTH Aachen University have suggested a surprising connection between the nematic behavior of a superconductor in a magnetic field — a state that resembles liquid crystals used in LCDs — and its sp more

  • Janus graphene opens doors to sustainable sodium-ion batteries

    In the search for sustainable energy storage, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, present a new concept to fabricate high-performance electrode materials for sodium batteries. It is based on a novel type of graphene to store one of the world's most common and cheap metal ions – more

  • Pioneering breakthrough: Creation of the most perfect graphene

    A team of researchers led by Director Rod Ruoff at the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM) within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), including graduate students at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), have achieved growth and characterization of large a 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
