Such promising physics have made graphene the most studied substance of the last decade, particularly in nanotechnology. In 2010, the researchers who first isolated it shared the Nobel Prize. Yet, while graphene is many things, it is not piezoelectric.…Continue

Researchers from the University of Bristol have measured and identified for the first time the stress and strain shear modulus and internal friction of graphene sheets. Graphene is a material that has many potential groundbreaking uses in the electronics and composites industry. The research, in collaboration with the US Office of Naval Research, is published in Nano Letters.…

A team of researchers led by Professor Sir Andre Geim demonstrated a graphene-Oxide based membrane that is impermeable to all gases and liquids (i.e. it's vacuum-tight) - but water can evaporate though it as if there's no membrane at all. This membrane can be used to remove water from a mixture or container. The team sealed a bottle of Vodka with such a membrane and this resulted in water evaporating - and the drink became stronger with time:…

The Electronic Materials Research Institute (eMRI) at Northeastern University will develop a graphene-based technology for use in low-cost infrared imaging applications for the US military. eMRI signed the research agreement with the United States Army Research Laboratory at Adelphi, Md. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is also collaborating in this project.
According to researchers from eMRI, graphene can potentially revolutionize infrared cameras or night…

Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered that graphene foam can outperform leading commercial gas sensors in detecting potentially dangerous and explosive chemicals. The foam is made from several graphene sheets (grown on Nickel, which was later removed) and is flexible, rugged and retains graphene's important properties:…

A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK demonstrated ink-jet printing as a viable method for large area production of graphene devices. The team produced a graphene-based ink by liquid phase exfoliation of graphite in N-Methylpyrrolidone, and used it to print thin-film transistors. The team also printed transparent conductive patterns.
This research paves the way towards all-printed flexible and transparent graphene devices, on any substrate.…

Researchers from the University of Science and Technology of China developed a new robot that's made by layering a polyethylene film onto a glass layer and an adding a layer of graphene that is used to convert photothermal energy from infra red light. The robot can pick, move and drop objects. Such a design may be useful for surgery, for example. It can also inspire the design of transparent artificial muscles:…
