Plastic Logic has just signed a collaboration agreement with Cambridge University’s Graphene Centre to research the use of graphene in flexible plastic electronics – and that means bendable smartphones, Kindles and iPads. “It has fantastic potential for flexible electronics,” says Mike Banach, director of research at Plastic Logic, which was founded by researchers from […]
Graphene is another carbon-based nanomaterial that is receiving a lot of attention since Geim and Novoselov were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for its discovery. Graphene is a single atomic layer of carbon, equivalent to a CNT that has been “unrolled” into a two-dimensional structure as shown in Figure 3. Graphene is […]
Graphene 3D Labs, a company focused on the development and manufacturing of next-generation graphene-enhanced materials for 3D printing, has been officially launched. Graphene 3D Labs, Inc., founded as a spinout of Graphene Laboratories, Inc., utilizes proprietary technologies aimed at enhancing the properties of materials currently used in 3D printers.

Columbia University physics professor Philip Kim, who is a coauthor of the new paper, says that chemical vapor deposition is one of the cheapest ways to make quality graphene on a large scale and should be compatible with existing semiconductor fabrication technologies. Right now, the researchers can make four-inch pieces, but Hong says that […]
Augmented reality generated in the form of a contact lens, with embedded pixels, would have many advantages over a glasses-based design. Many companies are currently working on ways to build curved LCDs, or even flexible LCDs, that could be embedded into a contact. Unless you want a full-scale bionic vision implant which sends the […]
The idea of using graphene in flexible touch screens is not new. Samsung itself has other patents related to the idea, however the most recent one covers a broad ground and might put Samsung at a significant advantage in the near future. The ability to provide inexpensive touch screens would allow for cheap smartphones, […]
Researchers in Australia have developed a new way to make graphene – the atom-thin sheets that stack together to make the graphite found in pencil ‘lead’. The discovery could speed the use of graphene in flexible electronics – such as thin LCD displays.
