MIT wants to make a one-kilometer square sheet of graphene

MIT's new Center for Graphene Devices and Systems (MIT-CG) has an ambitious plan - to produce a one-kilometer square sheet of graphene. They are currently starting to develop the basic science and technology - which is based on the printing press. The idea is to grow graphene in a roll to roll process. MIT hopes that if they manage to develop this technology they'll enable a whole new graphene industry.

Currently they've been able to grow small sheets only using this technology (a "few centimeters" in size). The largest graphene sheet made to date was 30" square (produced by Japanese and Korean researches in June 2010) - which was also made in a roll-to-roll printing process.

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
