The Attempt to Achieve Standardization within the Graphene Industry
The true description of graphene is that of a single atomic layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal array. However, the nanocarbon material landscape is much more complicated than this simple statement, with single-layer, few-layer, multi-layer, graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) and both graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) all to be considered as types of graphene.

IDTechEx Discuss Additive Manufacturing: So Much More Than the Printer
With so much focus being put on 3D printers, it can be easy to lose sight of the many other important sectors that make 3D printing, especially industrial additive manufacturing, possible. It takes an entire ecosystem, including materials, software, post-processing, quality assurance, services, specialized training, and more, for 3D printing to be utilized in high-value industries and applications

3D Printed, Edible QR Codes
Researchers from Japan have developed a way to include an unobtrusive edible tag embedded inside food—in their original experiments, cookies—that can be read without having to first destroy the food. Another major advantage of their method, known as "interiqr," is that the tag doesn't change the outer appearance or taste of the food at all.

3D Printing Plant Cells Shows Promise
A new study shows a reproducible way of studying cellular communication among varied types of plant cells by "bioprinting" these cells via a 3D printer. Learning more about how plant cells communicate with each other - and with their environment - is key to understanding more about plant cell functions and could ultimately lead to creating better crop varieties and optimal growing environments.
