Picture of the Day: The thinnest anticorrosive coating

  New research has established graphene as the thinnest known coating for protecting metals against corrosion.

Graphene-metal combination may shrink electronics

Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics.

Graphene and Semiconductors: Smaller, Cheaper, Better

Mobile phones that bend, self-powered nanodevices, new and improved solar cell technology and windows that generate electricity are but a few of the potential products from the union of semiconductors and graphene.

New Magnetic Graphene could revolutionize electronics

  Researchers from IMDEA-Nanociencia Institute and from Autonoma and Complutense Universities of Madrid (Spain) have managed to give graphene magnetic properties. The breakthrough, published in the journal ‘Nature Physics‘, opens the door to the development of graphene-based spintronic devices, that is, devices based on the spin or rotation of the electron, and could transform the […]

We’ve seen graphene and molybdenite chips. What if we combined them?

EPFL scientists have combined two materials with advantageous electronic properties — graphene and molybdenite — into a flash memory prototype that is very promising in terms of performance, size, flexibility and energy consumption.

Samsung tests graphene transistors

Graphene has always been considered a vast improvement over its current silicon overlord, but a few practical issues have always kept its takeover bid grounded. Samsung, however, thinks it’s cracked at least one of those — graphene’s inability to switch off current.

Graphene transistor now flexible; sets new records

Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin in the US say that they have made state-of-the-art flexible graphene field-effect transistors with record current densities and the highest power and conversion gain ever.
