IBM builds graphene chip that’s 10,000 times faster, using standard CMOS processes

Engineers at IBM Research have built the world’s most advanced graphene-based chip, with performance that’s 10,000 times better than previous graphene ICs. The key to the breakthrough is a new manufacturing technique that allows the graphene to be deposited on the chip without it being damaged (something that has heretofore been very hard to achieve). Continue Reading...

XG Sciences and Graphene Nanoplatelets

Founded in 2006, Michigan based XG Sciences claims to be a world leader and first-to-market with their production of low cost, high volume graphene nanoplatelets. Investors in XG Sciences include Hanwha Chemical, POSCO, and most recently Samsung Ventures. Cabot Corporation is also a non-exclusive licensee of their production processes and a development partner. XG Sciences was spunoff from Michigan State Continue Reading...

Graphene’s love affair with water

Graphene has proven itself as a wonder material with a vast range of unique properties. Among the least-known marvels of graphene is its strange love affair with water. Graphene is hydrophobic – it repels water – but narrow capillaries made from graphene vigorously suck in water allowing its rapid permeation, if the water layer is Continue Reading...
