Graphene | The Material of the Future

There have been many exciting advancements in the field of materials science in the past quarter century. Perhaps none has generated the enthusiasm and excitement as the substance known as Graphene. This substance is pure carbon in the form of sheets one atom thick. Graphene is estimated to be 200 times stronger than steel, is Continue Reading...

On the edge of graphene

On the edge of graphene Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have discovered that the conductivity at the edges of graphene devices is different to the central material. Image showing the differences along the edge of the graphene The group used local scanning electrical techniques to examine the local nanoscale electronic properties of epitaxial Continue Reading...
