Meeting growing demand for increased storage capacity
Demand for integrated energy storage devices is growing rapidly as people rely more and more on portable and wireless electronics, and the global need grows for clean energy sources such as solar and wind energies. This is creating an exponential need for advanced energy storage technologies - ...
The Art of Making Tiny Holes: Scientists developed a technique for processing surfaces on an atomic scale
Nobody can shoot a pistol bullet through a banana in such a way that the skin is perforated but the banana remains intact. However, on the level of individual atomic layers, such a feat has now been achieved - a nano-structuring method has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), with which certain ...
New research suggests that graphene - made in a specific way - could be used to make more durable hydrogen fuel cells for cars
In the study, published in the journal Nanoscale, scientists produced graphene via a special, scalable technique and used it to develop hydrogen fuel cell catalysts. The research team, involving scientists from Queen Mary University of London and University College London (UCL), showed that this ...
Comprehensive view on the driving forces of the complex processes occurring during the transformation of graphite into graphene oxide
A paper by Kazan Federal University appeared in early access in Carbon. Project lead Ayrat Dimiev has been working on this topic since 2012, when he was a part of Professor James Tour's group at Rice University. First results saw light in 2014. That paper, which has amassed 490 citations at this ...
Attractive for applications in electronics and quantum computing
A team of physicists and chemists has produced the first porous graphene ribbons in which specific carbon atoms in the crystal lattice are replaced with nitrogen atoms. These ribbons have semiconducting properties that make them attractive for applications in electronics and quantum computing, as ...
Graphene Nanoribbons might soon be much easier to produce
An international research team led by Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the U.S. has succeeded in producing this versatile material for the first time directly on the surface of semiconductors. Until now, this was ...
By combining a ceramic material with graphene, Brown University engineers have made what they say is the toughest solid electrolyte built to date
A team of Brown University researchers has found a way to double the toughness of a ceramic material used to make solid-state lithium ion batteries. The strategy, described in the journal Matter, could be useful in bringing solid-state batteries to the mass market. "There's huge interest in ...
Quantum entanglement in graphene nanostructures
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 ...
Method represents a simple, inexpensive and scalable approach to produce multi-functional graphene infused synthetic opals
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 ...
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 ...
