Samsung developed graphene quantum dots based flash memory devices

Researchers are developing flash memory devices that store the charge in nanocrystals instead of the usually used polysilicon layers. These kinds of devices are less sensitive to local defects and offer high-density memory potential.

Researchers from Samsung Electronics (and Korea's Kyung Hee University) are now developing similar flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to…

Researchers use regular pencil and paper to create graphene-based sensors

Students from Northwestern University managed to use pencils and regular paper to create functional sensor devices. They created two types of sensors - strain sensors and chemical vapor sensors.

The students had a discussion about the conductive properties of graphene. They realized that when you draw a line on a piece of paper with a pencil, the pencil's graphite sheds numerous graphene sheets. They started exploring what these graphene sheets can be used for... and, well,  you…

The world's largest graphene production plant is now operational in China

China's Ningbo Morsh Technology's graphene production line, with its annual capacity of 300 tons (or tens of millions of graphene films) is now online.

China plans to build a state-level graphene industrialization base in China's Chongqing Municipality. Within 5 years, they hope to reach revenues of 100 billion yuan ($16.35 billion). If the current capacity is indeed 300 tons per year, than China is now the world's leading graphene producer by far.

Ningbo Morsh…

The NSF awards $1.5 million towards a new roll-to-roll graphene nanopetals production process research

Researchers at Purdue University are developing a new graphene "nanopetals" mass production process based on a roll-to-roll process. Those nanopetals are graphene-based vertical nanostructures that look like tiny rose petals, and they have applications in sensors, heat-management, supercapacitors and batteries. This research is funded with a $1.5 million grant from the NSF, and aims to increase the production speed of nanopetal-coated surfaces to 10 square meters per hour (a dramatic…

Adding holes to graphene

Graphene (a sheet of carbon just one atom thick) can be successfully p-doped with boron, according to new experiments by researchers at Columbia University in the US. The result means that the carbon material can be both electron- and hole-doped, something that is important for advancing real-world graphene-based electronics. B dopants in graphene Chemical doping can be used to add or remove electrons from a material. Two years ago, a team led by Abhay Pasupathy showed that graphene could be…

Graphene enables long lasting lithium-air batteries that can enable electric cars with almost 1,000 kilometers range

Researchers from Korea's KAIST institute developed a lithium-air rechargeable battery using a nano fiber graphene composite catalyst. This battery has five times greater storage compared to current lithium-ion batteries, and is the highest performing lithium-air batter ever developed with a good lifespan to boot. Such batteries may enable electric vehicle to travel almost a 1,000 kilometers on a single charge:…

DNA-guided Silver and Graphene-Oxide prove to be a great anti-bacterial agent in plants

Researchers from the University of Florida and Hunan Univeristy developed DNA-directed silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) grown on graphene oxide (GO). These so called Ag@dsDNA@GO composites act as antibacterial agents, decreasing X. perforans (a model plant pathogenic bacterium) cell viability in culture and on plants.

In a greenhouse experiment they applied this material on tomato transplants and they reported significant reduction of disease caused by bacterial spot compared to the…
