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…

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…

Researchers develop high-frequency flexible graphene transistors

Researchers developed a new process to make flexible transistors from graphene. The new process enable high electron mobility and high frequencies (in the Ghz range). The process uses a graphene in a solution and places it on polyimide substrates:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
