Acquiring graphene-like films from salts to boost nanoelectronics: Physicists use supercomputers to find a way of making 'imitation grap... | Graphene | Scoop.it
Researchers from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), the Technological Institute for Superhard and Novel Carbon Materials (TISNCM), the National University of Science and Technology MISiS (Russia), and Rice University (USA) used computer simulations to find how thin a slab of salt has to be in order for it to break up into graphene-like layers. Based on the computer simulation, they derived the equation for the number of layers in a crystal that will produce ultrathin films with applications in nanoelectronics. Their findings were in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters (which has an impact factor of 8.54).

Experts roundup: will CVD ever be a viable commercial way to produce graphene? | Graphene-Info | Graphene | Scoop.it
Graphene-Info is happy to introduce a new feature: Experts Roundup. We asked several graphene professionals to answer a graphene related question. We hope this will prove to be an interesting read and can help shed light on the nooks and cranks of the graphene industry. Enjoy!Do you think CVD will ever be a viable way to mass produce commercial graphene sheets?Gonçalo Gonçalves, product marketing specialist, Aixtron: Chemical vapour deposition has been used for several decades in the semiconductor industry to deposit high-quality thin-films. This technique is known to provide superior process reliability and throughput which are key requirements in the manufacturing of integrated circuits. Since 2004, graphene has emerged as a “wonder material” with an impressive number of potential applications across several fields. The discovery of a CVD route to produce graphene has also been an important achievement towards the integration of this carbon nanomaterial into semiconductor devices. With the advance of the graphene field from basic to applied research new and more complex challenges arise, especially in the integration reliability. CVD technique will find its way to mass production of graphene once these challenges are addressed and the benefits of graphene in semiconductor devices are unveiled.

Atomic magnets using hydrogen and graphene

Atomic magnets using hydrogen and graphene | Graphene | Scoop.it
Graphene, a sheet one atom thick made up of carbon atoms, has a huge number of qualities but lacks magnetic properties. Yet the hydrogen atom has the smallest magnetic moment. The magnetic moment is the magnitude that determines how much and in what direction a magnet will exert force. "In other words, we can all remember having held a magnet in our hands and seeing how it was capable of attracting or repelling another magnet at a certain distance, which was greater or smaller depending on its power. Well, what really determined this behaviour was the magnetic moment of our set of magnets. The distance at which we began to feel the appearance of a force was specified by the spatial extension of their magnetic moments, and the fact that the force should attract or repel depended on the relative orientation between them; that is why when one of the magnets was turned round, they then attracted or repelled each other or vice versa," explained Miguel Moreno Ugeda, a nanoGUNE researcher.

April 18, 2016 -- Calverton, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSXV: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) ("Graphene 3D" or the "Company") is pleased to announce commencement of a new production reactor that results in 5-fold increase of production capabilities of Graphene Oxide and Reduced Graphene Oxide. The necessity of expanding production volume for these materials is driven by increased demand as well as the by the internal consumption by the Company's Industrial Materials division.

The Company will discuss further aspects of the increased Graphene Oxide production and other recent innovations at a major graphene event called Graphene 2016 Conference, held on April 19th - 22nd held in Genoa, Italy. Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO, will represent the Company and address the gathering with her presentation entitled "Graphene and Additive Manufacturing; the Next Industrial Revolution".

"We are delighted to see increasing demand for graphene materials and composites. We are committed to stay on track to satisfy this demand." said Dr. Polyakova. "Our team is excited to share our recent progress and opportunity to present an invited paper is an endorsement of Graphene 3D's expert research team as well as confirmation of our leading role in the commercialization of graphene. It is a superb opportunity to connect with the thought leaders in the graphene space."
Graphene 2016 is the 6th edition of the Graphene Conference series, the largest European Event in Graphene and 2D Materials. Graphene 2016 Conference will be attended by about 60% academic researchers and 40% industrial R&D professionals all of whom are working directly with graphene. It is the main meeting point of the Graphene community worldwide and will feature an industrial forum with the focus on graphene commercialization.

Revolutionary new graphene elastomer exceeds sensitivity of human skin

Revolutionary new graphene elastomer exceeds sensitivity of human skin | Graphene | Scoop.it

A new sponge-like material, discovered by Monash researchers, could have diverse and valuable real-life applications. The new elastomer could be used to create soft, tactile robots to help care for elderly people, perform remote surgical procedures or build highly sensitive prosthetic hands.


Graphene-based cellular elastomer, or G-elastomer, is highly sensitive to pressure and vibrations. Unlike other viscoelastic substances such as polyurethane foam or rubber, G-elastomer bounces back extremely quickly under pressure, despite its exceptionally soft nature. This unique, dynamic response has never been found in existing soft materials, and has excited and intrigued researchers Professor Dan Li and Dr Ling Qiu from the Monash Centre for Atomically Thin Materials (MCATM).


According to Dr Qiu, "This graphene elastomer is a flexible, ultra-light material which can detect pressures and vibrations across a broad bandwidth of frequencies. It far exceeds the response range of our skin, and it also has a very fast response time, much faster than conventional polymer elastomer.


"Although we often take it for granted, the pressure sensors in our skin allow us to do things like hold a cup without dropping it, crushing it, or spilling the contents. The sensitivity and response time of G-elastomer could allow a prosthetic hand or a robot to be even more dexterous than a human, while the flexibility could allow us to create next generation flexible electronic devices," he said.
