Creating tunable graphene for next-gen electronics

Much has been spoken about graphene and its remarkable properties. With electronics, to be truly useful graphene would need to carry an electric current that switches on and off, as with silicon. Researchers are devising a laser-method to do just that.

Op-Ed: Graphene fibres to replace pharmaceuticals? It’s happening

Wollongong - Spun graphene fibres are coming to deal with diabetes, heart disease and more, and they’re totally non-toxic. These things seem to be ideal for chronic diseases.

Graphene sponge aids development of new lithium sulphur batteries

The path towards an electric future is hampered by the ability of batteries to provide sufficient power over a sufficiently long period of time. Globally considerable research is going into methods to improve battery power, including the use of graphene.

Essential Science: Introducing the ‘wonder material’ — borophene

Forget graphene, there’s a new ‘super material’ that it getting scientists interested – borophene. The material has properties that are stronger and more flexible than graphene. We take a look at some future possibilities.

Graphene and silk make self-healable electronic tattoos

Researchers have designed graphene-based e-tattoos designed to act as biosensors. The sensors can collect data relate to human health, such as skin reactions to medication or to assess the degree of exposure to ultraviolet light.

Graphene helps to repair broken bones

Researchers have successfully used phosphate graphene as a scaffold, enabling the body's own cells to rapidly reform the missing or damaged bone and hence to promote bone healing.

New innovations with graphene-like materials

From special magnets that can aid next generation quantum computers to bulletproof armour, to a coating that can keep spacecraft cool to making more effective electronics — each innovation is based on materials with graphene-like properties.

The big graphene innovations you need to know about
