Graphenes: What To Do When Diverse Properties Become The Standard
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom D
10:00 - 10:20
Graphene has generated a great deal of excitement in many industries as a result of its outstanding promise. What is not often recognized is that physics changes at the nano scale. As as a result of those changes very small, seemingly insignificant differences among graphene products can greatly affect the performance of a product in any given application. This presentation will explore some of those changes and the impact they can have on product development, including building a solid business case. We will also show how this understanding has informed Nova Graphene's approach to taking graphene products to market.
