Graphene Market Research Tipping Point - Part 1
In this two-part article Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, a leading industry expert and Research Director at IDTechEx will discuss the global graphene market.
'Game-chainging' tidal energy project approved for channel regions
Interreg France (Channel) England Programme has approved the biggest ever Interreg project that will prove to be game-changing for the European tidal stream energy sector. The Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project, known as TIGER, is an ambitious €46.8m project, of which €28m (69%) comes from the European Regional Development Fund via the Interreg France (Channel) England Programme.
Applied Graphene Materials, Wilton Centre is supporting growth
AGM was established in 2010 by Professor Karl Coleman as a spin-out from the chemistry department of Durham University. As you would probably expect from its name, it manufactures graphene and supports its application in innovative new materials in many industries.
Graphene: Infinite Possibilities and Beyond
Graphene was hailed as a breakthrough when it was discovered at the University of Manchester in 2004 due to its incredible properties as single atomic layer material - it's strong (tougher than diamonds!), lightweight and corrosion resistant, and has thermal and electrical properties too.
Graphene sensors that measure air quality a step closer to mass market
Graphene-based sensors that can measure the quality of air using the 2D Material could soon enter mass production thanks to a new partnership between a University of Manchester spin-out company and Chinese corporation, Tunghsu Optoelectronics.
3D printable 2D materials show promise to improve energy storage
For the first time, a team of researchers have formulated inks using the 2D material MXene, to produce 3D printed interdigitated electrodes.
Will your future computer be made using bacteria?
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.
Red wine may hold the key to next-gen wearable technology
A team of scientists are seeking to kick-start a wearable technology revolution by creating flexible fibres and adding acids from red wine.
Solar cell defect mystery solved after decades of global effort
A team of scientists has solved a key flaw in solar panels after 40 years of research around the world.
BatterySense Project works on development of next generation batteries
CPI is part of a project focused on next generation battery and sensor work. Operating alongside partners on the BatterySense programme, CPI is supporting work to reduce the size of existing wireless sensing form factors by exploiting additive manufacture. This allows for the intimate integration of batteries into the substrates of ultrathin label-like sensors fabricated by roll-to-roll processes.
Versarien Group is a UK company formed in 2010 and are the parent group for a few advanced material companies. The company acquire IP rich companies.
Grapheneca (renamed from Nano Graphene Inc founded in 2016) is a US based graphene producer.
Atomic Mechanics manufacture force and pressure sensors using graphene material. IDTechEx technology analyst Dr Richard Collins interviewed Dr Christian Berger (CTO).
Graphene@Manchester at The University of Manchester
Graphene@Manchester at The University of Manchester is an on-going programme of activity to ensure that Manchester and the UK play a leading international role in developing the revolutionary potential of graphene.
First scalable graphene yarns for wearable textiles produced
A team of researchers have developed a method to produce scalable graphene-based yarn. Multi-functional wearable e-textiles have been a focus of much attention due to their great potential for healthcare, sportswear, fitness and aerospace applications. Graphene has been considered a potentially good material for these types of applications due to its high conductivity, and flexibility.
Advanced Microstructures have developed a process for non-invasive alignment of graphene and other 2D materials. IDTechEx technology analyst Dr Richard Collins interviewed Dr Richard Fields (Managing Director).
Flags that generate energy from wind and sun
Scientists have created flags that can generate electrical energy using wind and solar power. The novel wind and solar energy-harvesting flags have been developed using flexible piezoelectric strips and flexible photovoltaic cells.
