Are graphene-based touch screens finally on the market?

A chinese company (called Powerbooster) is developing graphene-based flexible touch panels for mobile devices. The company claims they are already producing 2 million units per month and are in talks with mid-size Chinese phone makers to incorporate these into mobile phones. They hope to have products on the market by the end of the year, and they aim to invest $150 million in the next 3 years to bring this to market:…

MIT's new graphene based solar cells to achieve world's highest energy conversion efficiency

Researchers from MIT are developing graphene and molybdenum-disulfide based solar cells that may become the world's most efficient solar cells. A single layer system (made from 1 graphene sheet and one MD sheet) achieves 1%-2% conversion while being only 1 nm thick. A silicon solar cells achieves 15%-20% efficiency but is hundreds of thousands times thicker. You can use several layers on top of each other to boost efficiency:…

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
