Le borophène devient un possible concurrent du graphène

Le borophène devient un possible concurrent du graphène | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

"Des chercheurs de l’université Brown aux États-Unis viennent de démontrer qu’une feuille d’une épaisseur d'un atome de bore était possible. Leurs résultats ont été publiés dans la revue Nature Communications. Concrètement, ils ont réussi à arranger 36 atomes de bore ensemble, montrant que les modèles théoriques établis par la communauté scientifique avant leur expérience étaient corrects. Ce n’est pas un borophène, mais on s’y approche..."

This Graphene Nanoribbon Conducts Electricity Insanely Fast

This Graphene Nanoribbon Conducts Electricity Insanely Fast | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it
You're looking a ribbon of graphene that's just one atom thick and fifteen atoms wide—and it could help shift data thousands of times faster than anything else currently can.

EHP – Nano GO Consortium—A Team Science Approach to Assess Engineered Nanomaterials: Reliable Assays and Methods

EHP – Nano GO Consortium—A Team Science Approach to Assess Engineered Nanomaterials: Reliable Assays and Methods | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

"Two articles in this issue of Environmental Health Perspectives—Xia et al. (2013) and Bonner et al. (2013)—report results of a unique collaborative approach to environmental health research. The consortium behind these studies (the Nano GO Consortium), which is developing standardized methods for assessing the health and safety implications of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), represents a new model of shared science that may offer lessons for other emerging and fast-evolving areas of research.

 

ENMs (man-made particles with any external dimension between 1 and 100 nm) have enabled considerable advances in electronics, drugs and medical devices, environmental remediation, and many other areas (Kessler 2011). They are fast becoming ubiquitous in products such as sunscreens, cosmetics, clothing, and building materials. Global demand for nanomaterials and nanoenabled devices is expected to approach $3.1 trillion by 2015 (Marquis et al. 2009)."
