It seems like every few months, scientists discover some brand new property about the miracle substance graphene, which dramatically increases its value to mankind, and makes it even more useful commercially. In a very recent paper published in Nature Nanotechnology, Marcelo Lozada-Hidalgo announced that he and a team of researchers at the University of Manchester
The place where graphene was first discovered has now announced that there is a new low-cost, immediately practical use for the super material which could conceivably completely revolutionize the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as some other related applications. The University of Manchester research team has developed graphene humidity sensors which can be embedded into RFID’s,
Since graphene’s discovery in 2004, it has become the material with the most promise, with a wide number of potential applications. It is the strongest material, has excellent conductive properties, and is incredibly flexible. There’s only one current limitation with graphene—besides the human imagination: it has no band gap, meaning it can’t be switched off.
Since the discovery of graphene in 2004, research on how to make graphene useful in industrial applications has been fervent. Graphene has many desirable properties: It’s the strongest material—it’s over two hundred times stronger than steel. It’s thin—just one gram of graphene can cover an entire football field. It’s conductive—it’s even more conductive than copper.
Graphene: the wonder material that is one atom thick, many times stronger than steel, and extremely conductive. Graphene, which is ultra thin graphite, has been around since 2004 after the University of Manchester discovered it and the research and possible applications continue to balloon. This material is more commonly heard of in solar and device/sensor
Graphene has become one of the most popular materials in science and technology. This is due to its flexibility, the one atom thickness, its matchless strength, and superior conductivity. And although graphene is flexible, taking graphene from a 2D structure to a 3D structure has proven to be challenging. Typically, to get a small wrinkle
