Italian researchers have come up with a new way of squeezing extra life out of standard lithium ion batteries, thanks to the miracle material.
In graphene we trust: How Poland is putting confidence and cash in a material still on the starting blocks
Poland is betting heavily on the future of graphene, even though it's some time away from commercial use.
Samsung's new process to synthesize graphene---a form of carbon more durable than steel and flexible for use in displays and wearables---could apply broadly to its product lineup over time.
So-called 'wonder material' graphene may be many things, but a replacement for silicon? Not so much, says the head of the graphene flagship that won €1bn in funding last month.
Researchers will be looking at how the one-atom thick graphene can be harnessed for ICT, sensors and transport.
The UK may have had a head start on graphene research, but it lags other countries in terms of the number of patents held. Can new funding help it tap the benefits of the so-called 'wonder material'?
With applications ranging from electronics to ships, the discovery that a graphene coating protects against corrosion gives the wonder material another string to its bow.
Work by scientists in the US on linking graphene to metal connectors paves the way for realistic electronic designs.
Norwegian scientists move to commercialise breakthrough that uses a molecular beam device to create gallium arsenide nanowires on a graphene substrate.
Science meets almost-technology in Nokia's patent application for graphene tech with the potential for much smaller and lighter sensors than those used in most digital cameras.
The prospect of faster computers may have taken a step closer as US researchers create a patchwork graphene-boron-nitride hybrid to address graphene's band-gap shortcomings.
MIT scientists create electronic components on material that answers graphene's main shortcoming.
Researchers' creation of a silicon-based field-effect transistor that mimics the electrical properties of graphene shows the battle for the future of electronics is still on.
Silicene could revolutionise electronics and even be more exciting than graphene - although reseachers will have to figure out exactly what it is, first.
