Graphene Gets Some Competition

“Flatland” has never looked so good. A little less than a decade ago, physicists showed they could pull away loosely bound layers of graphite to reveal graphene, a 2-D carbon structure. The material was shown to have very promising electronic properties. But graphene isn’t the only game in town. A whole host of 2-D structures Continue Reading...

Graphene Overtaking Carbon Nanotubes

Graphene may displace carbon nanotubes and even Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) in some applications. Cathleen Thiele reports. Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have not yet met commercial expectations from a decade ago, and now hot on its heels is graphene. Graphene is considered a hot candidate for applications such as computers, displays, photovoltaics, and flexible electronics. IDTechEx Continue Reading...
