Graphene: a revolutionary material?

Analyst Commentary, Matthew Bovencamp: Graphene, which is a flat monolayer of carbon atoms tightly packed into a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice, has gained considerable attention after researchers were able to extract graphene from bulk graphite in 2004. The excitement over graphene is due to its unique properties and the abundance of graphite from which graphene […]

What is graphene good for?

It’s hard to imagine a substance only one atom thin: so thin, in fact, that it exists in only two dimensions not three. That’s graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms touted as a miracle material: the strongest substance yet discovered, the fastest conductor of electricity, the most optically pure material, and yet lightweight […]

Graphene transfer for transparent electronics

Researchers in Texas have found a new way to transfer large-area graphene thin films grown on copper foils onto other substrates. The material could be used to make components for photovoltaic devices and even be an alternative to traditional conductive metal oxides, like indium tin oxide, in transparent electrodes for liquid crystal displays (LCDs), […]
