Will your future computer be made using bacteria?

Scientists are making graphene easier and more environmentally friendly to produce

12-Jul-2019

In order to create new and more efficient computers, medical devices, and other advanced technologies, researchers are turning to nanomaterials: materials manipulated on the scale of atoms or molecules that exhibit unique properties. Graphene--a flake of carbon as thin as a single later of ...

One of the world's fastest cameras films motion of electrons

Research team examines ultrafast conversion of light energy in a solid

24-Dec-2018

During the conversion of light into electricity, such as in solar cells, a large part of the input light energy is lost. This is due to the behaviour of electrons inside of materials. If light hits a material, it stimulates electrons energetically for a fraction of a second, before they pass the ...

Graphene assembled film shows higher thermal conductivity than graphite film

26-Jun-2018

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a graphene assembled film that has over 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film – despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene. The graphene film shows great potential as a ...

For graphite pellets, just add elbow grease

26-Mar-2018

It's easy and economical to make shiny pellets of graphite from functionalized graphene, according to scientists at Rice University. A report shows how chemically altered graphene powder can be pressed into a lightweight, semiporous solid that retains many of the strong and conductive qualities ...

Hidden talents: Converting heat into electricity with pencil and paper

21-Feb-2018

Thermoelectric materials can use thermal differences to generate electricity. Now there is an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way of producing them with the simplest of components: a normal pencil, photocopy paper, and conductive paint are sufficient to convert a temperature difference ...

Prelithiation strategy enhances battery performance at low temperatures

06-Dec-2017

When it is cold in winter, cars tend to have starting problems. This is not much better with electric cars, which inevitably lose capacity of their rechargeable lithium-ion batteries at freezing temperatures. Now, Chinese scientists have offered a strategy to avoid plunging battery kinetics. In a ...
