Graphene nanoribbon defects

Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) feature interesting physical, electrical, thermal, and optical properties because of the interplay between their crystal and electronic structures. These characteristics have pushed them to the forefront in the…

Putting the Smarts Into Graphene

As our need for battery power increases and the amount of space available to generate and contain that power decreases, ultrathin batteries are in high demand, particularly for use in medical monitoring devices. Recently a scientific team…

Charge It, Wear It, Use It, Wash It

Graphene inks could lead to washable wearables The future of mobile devices is wearable – but we aren’t talking about watches or clip-on accessories or even bulky battery packs sandwiches within pockets of shirts. Researchers at the…
