Proton transport in graphene shows promise for renewable energy
Researchers have discovered another new and unexpected physical effect in graphene - membranes that could be used in devices to artificially mimic photosynthesis.
Graphene sensors that could revolutionise the Internet of Things
Researchers have devised graphene sensors embedded into RFIDs, which have the potential to revolutionise the Internet of Things.
Using natural motion of 2D materials as source of clean energy
Graphene is a seemingly impossible material. For years, scientists had theorized that lifting a single layer of carbon atoms from a chunk of graphite could produce the first two-dimensional material, which they called graphene.
World's first molecular robot capable of building molecules
Scientists have created the world's first 'molecular robot' that is capable of performing basic tasks including building other molecules.
Polystyrene makes solar panels cheaper
Researchers are using polystyrene particles rather than expensive polymers to make the next generation of solar cells, which are used to make solar panels, more stable and even cheaper.
Flexible batteries power the future of wearable technology
The rapid development of wearable technology has received another boost from a new development using graphene for printed electronic devices.
New chemical method could revolutionize graphene
Scientists have discovered a new chemical method that enables graphene to be incorporated into a wide range of applications while maintaining its ultra-fast electronics.
Research aims to make artificial intelligence explain itself
Eight computer science professors in Oregon State University's College of Engineering have received a $6.5 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to make artificial-intelligence-based systems like autonomous vehicles and robots more trustworthy.
The Graphene paradigm shift is coming
IDTechEx has invited a series of industrial players and leaders active in graphene commercialization to contribute their opinions about the state of the technology and markets. As part of article series, we will today hear from Standard Graphene who talks about a graphene paradigm shift.
Focusing on the mass production of safe, quality graphene
IDTechEx has invited a series of industrial players and leaders active in graphene commercialization to contribute their opinions about the state of the technology and markets. As part of the article series, we will today hear from Perpetuus Advanced Materials who share their candid views on the graphene market progress.
Ink-jet printable and biocompatible layered electronics
Printed electronics can lead to both low-cost and flexible devices. Flexible electronics is of particular interest for wearable systems, such as health and fitness trackers, while the relative low-costs of printing are attractive for functional packaging for consumer products.
Graphene Highlights from MWC
IDTechEx recently attended the Mobile World Congress and visited the graphene flagship booth, which consisted of a number of graphene companies highlighting their latest work. Here are some of the highlights.
Next generation of nuclear robots will go where none have gone before
The cost of cleaning up the UK's existing nuclear facilities has been estimated to be between £95 billion and £219 billion over the next 120 years or so. The harsh conditions within these facilities means that human access is highly restricted and much of the work will need to be completed by robots.
Water-based and biocompatible 2D inks for printed electronics
Researchers have developed a method of producing water-based and inkjet printable 2D material inks, which could bring 2D crystal heterostructures from the lab into real-world products.
