News — Graphene

Graphene based batteries are lighter, more durable with higher capacity of energy storage.

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The potential of graphene for batteries becomes more and more obvious. Recently, Saint Jean Carbon announced that it has started the design and build of graphene based lithium-ion batteries.  SJC Stated that a single layer of graphite with 99.999999%C and single atom thickness will be used to create the anode. The company expects to reach extremely high performance lithium-ion battery application in two year with internal R&D. Graphene has been proven to be a wonder material. Its unique honeycomb lattice structure provides numerous extraordinary material properties. It is extremely light and mechanically flexible with a large surface area. It also...

CVD Single Layer Graphene Significantly Enhances Fuel Cell Efficiency

Posted by MSE Supplies on

Graphene is increasingly studied as a promising platform for developing novel separation technologies in applications such as fuel cells.  This interest has arisen because graphene is a maximally thin membrane that, once perforated with atomic accuracy, may allow ultrafast and highly selective sieving of gases, liquids, dissolved ions and other species of interest.   High quality single layer graphene films can be ordered from msesupplies.com.  It is known that Andre Geim and co-workers (Nature, A.K. Geim et.al 2014), discovered proton transfer through single layer graphene and other 2D materials. Also graphene is known for its dense lattice packing structure, inhibiting the passage...

Ultralight mechanical watch enabled by graphene

Posted by MSE Supplies on

An ultralight high-performance mechanical watch made with graphene is unveiled today in Geneva at the Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie thanks to a unique collaboration. The University of Manchester has collaborated with watchmaking brand Richard Mille and McLaren F1 to create world’s lightest mechanical chronograph by pairing leading graphene research with precision engineering. The RM 50-03 watch was made using a unique composite incorporating graphene to manufacture a strong but lightweight new case to house the delicate watch mechanism. The graphene composite known as Graph TPT™ weighs less than previous similar materials used in watchmaking. Graphene is the world’s...

Functional OLED electrodes are produced from graphene for the first time

Posted by MSE Supplies on

 For the first time, it has been possible to produce functional OLED electrodes from graphene. The process was developed by Fraunhofer researchers together with partners from industry and research. The OLEDs can, for example, be integrated into touch displays, and the miracle material graphene promises many other applications for the future. High quality single layer graphene films can be ordered from msesupplies.com.  The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP from Dresden, together with partners, has succeeded for the first time in producing OLED electrodes from graphene. The electrodes have an area of 2 ×...

Graphene is Proven to be an Enabler of Ultra-fast Electronics

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The strong electric field of the highly charged ions is able to tear dozens of electrons away from the graphene within a matter of femtoseconds. However, because graphene is able to transport high electric currents, the positive charge can be rapidly neutralised. Credit: TU ViennaNew experiments have shown that it is possible for extremely high currents to pass through graphene, a form of carbon. This allows imbalances in electric charge to be rapidly rectified. High quality single layer graphene films can be ordered from msesupplies.com.  Once again, graphene has proven itself to be a rather special material: an international research...
