Graphene and Molybdenite based flash memory is efficient, flexible, small and fast

Researchers from EPFL designed a new flash memory cell prototype that is made from graphene and Molybdenite (MoS2). They say that the new design is efficient, flexible, small and fast. The idea is that the unique electronic properties of MoS2 (it has an "idea energy band") are combined with graphene's excellent conductivity:…

New graphene-based earphone-sized speaker

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a new graphene-based earphone-sized speaker - that can actually outperform the best earphones. They say that even with almost no specialized acoustic design, it performs comparably to a high quality commercial headsets (a Sennheiser MX-400 earphone, in fact). The graphene speaker is also highly efficient:…

Graphene research program to get €1 billion over ten years from the EU

Back in May 2011, a graphene research program (called GRAPHENE-CA) was shortlisted for one of two €1 billion EU research initiatives. Today we're happy to report that this project was indeed chosen by the European Commission. This is set to be a huge boost to graphene research and will hopefully accelerate commercialization of graphene based products. The EU will officially announce their decision next week (January 28):…

Graphene Oxide used to soak radioactive waste

Researchers from Rice University and Lomonosov Moscow State University discovered that Graphene Oxide can quickly remove radioactive material from contaminated water. They found out that graphene oxide bind quickly to natural and human-made radionuclides and condense them into solids.

This discovery is obviously useful in contaminated site cleanups (such as the Fukushima nuclear plants), but is also useful in hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) for oil and gas recovery and rare…

Is graphene nano?

I've been working with graphene for over a year now, and before that I was working with photonic nanostructures. For me the transition from nano to graphene was natural. After the initial excitement and a period of learning that comes with a new job, I've recently started to follow my old nano-community again. Although to me it has seemed that the fields of nano and graphene are intertwined, I have now started to think that maybe they are two different worlds. So I think this is the proper…

Highly transparent and flexible resistive memory made from silicon and graphene

Researchers from the Rice University have developed highly transparent (95%), flexible, nonvolatile resistive memory devices based on silicon oxide (SiOx) and graphene. This research began in 2008 when they discovered that silicon oxide itself can be a switch.

The researchers placed the SiOx and crossbar graphene terminals on flexible plastic to make the simple memory devices which can be stacked in 3D and made in multi-state architectures:…

Sony managed to create a 100-meter long graphene sheet, largest in the world!

Sony has developed a new graphene producing process that use a roll-to-roll method. They have built a machine that can produce graphene sheets up to 100 meters in length (23 cm width), and the resulting sheet is the largest area graphene sheet in the world by far (the previous record was Samsung's 40" sheet from back in 2011):…

Nanométeres hullámok a grafén atomi szerkezetében (in Hungarian)

Az MTA TTK Műszaki Fizikai és Anyagtudományi Intézetében Tapasztó Leventének és munkatársainak először sikerült a grafén szerkezeti hullámzását nanométer alatti (0.7 nm) pontossággal szabályozni. Az eddig elérhető 300 nanométeres hullámhosszhoz képest ez óriási előrelépést jelent.

Aligned insulated graphene sheets hold promise for 3D chips

Researchers from Manchester University have used a new side-view imaging method to individually visualize graphene sheets in a layered insulated stack of sheets. They found out that each graphene layer in such a structure is perfectly aligned, even with 10 layers. This was a surprise as they expected the graphene to be distorted.

This means that stacking graphene sheets does not degrade their properties. This means that you can stack graphene to create 3D chips - which will have a…

Graphene may enable the ultimate water desalination device

MIT scientists have shown (in simulations) that nanoporous graphene can filter salt from water at a rate that is 2-3 orders of magnitude faster than today’s best commercial desalination technology, reverse osmosis (RO). This could lead to more efficient and smaller water desalination facilities.

The graphene is used as a membrane material that allows a flow of water with full salt refection via size exclusion. Other materials have been investigated for the same purpose, but the…
