We talk a lot about graphene, on this blog. The wonderful two dimensional lattice of carbon with its hexagonal, chickenwire structure.
Graphene gets its unique properties from the geometry of its carbon atoms. But how does something so simple produce such profoundly different physics?
When first discovered, graphene was odd. Now odd is too small a word for a material seemingly set on winning all the records a material can win
Sellotape and sugar rub shoulders with high-temperature furnaces and low-pressure chambers in a rush to produce graphene, which aims to be the 21st century's successor to silicon
Carbon is valuable as diamond and in oil, but a new form of the pure element may be even more important in our future. ZDNet UK presents the first in a series of features on graphene
From the Nobel prize-winning team who brought you the honeycomb structure sheet of carbon atoms that is graphene, comes the sequel: Fluoro-graphene: 2D Teflon.Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim led an international team of scientists modify a sheet of graphene so that it became an insulator.
Wonder material graphene gets more wonderfully mysterious the closer scientists look. And the latest attempt to understand how the atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms carries current the way it does has left physicists with more questions than they started with.
University of California, Berkeley researchers discovered that graphene can be structurally manipulated in such a way, the electrons behave as they would in a magnetic field.
New research shows promise for super-thin films with thermal superpowers. If electronics enter into a Graphene Age, could overheating become a relic of the past?
As you probably know, graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms packed in a dense two-dimensional honeycomb lattice. And it recently became very popular recently as a basis for ultra-fast transistors. Now, according to Science News, U.S. researchers are using graphene to image individual hydrogen atoms via a standard transmission electron microscope (TEM) technology. Until now, heavy atoms, such as carbon, could be detected by electron microscopy. But the physicists from Berkeley, California, have shown it's possible to track the smallest atoms, hydrogen ones.
