Phantoms Foundation Releases Catalogue of Companies Working on Graphene at International Conference & Exhibition Graphene 2014

Phantoms Foundation is pleased to announce a catalogue of companies working on Graphene launched during the International Conference & Exhibition Graphene 2014 (Toulouse, France) back in May. The first edition features only companies working directly on the field. The second version (2015) to be launched during Graphene 2015 (10-13 March, 2015) will include all those who work hard in Universities, Research Centers, etc. [More]
Graphene Ribbons Tuned to Act as Semiconductors

Graphene Ribbons Tuned to Act as Semiconductors

Using graphene ribbons of unimaginably small widths – just several atoms across – a group of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has found a novel way to “tune” the wonder material, causing the extremely efficient conductor of electricity to act as a semiconductor. [More]

Novel Crystal Forms Three Atoms Thick Flexible, Switchable Material

Novel Crystal Forms Three Atoms Thick Flexible, Switchable Material

Computer simulation shows how to make a crystal that would toggle like a light switch between conductive and non-conductive structures; this could lead to flexible electronic materials and enable a cell phone to be woven into a shirt [More]
Graphene Special Interest Group Publishes ‘Graphene Think Piece’

Graphene Special Interest Group Publishes ‘Graphene Think Piece’

The Graphene Special Interest Group (GrapheneSIG) has published a Graphene Think Piece. The document was initiated by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to "inform a view on where and how the UK might best gain economic value from graphene related activities." [More]

Vorbeck, In-Q-Tel Partner to Accelerate Development of Conductive Graphene Compounds

Vorbeck Materials Corp., a world leader in the field of graphene, has entered into a strategic investment and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel, Inc. (IQT), the independent strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community. [More]
Addition of Water Molecules Leads to Increase in Distance Between Graphite Oxide Layers

Addition of Water Molecules Leads to Increase in Distance Between Graphite Oxide Layers

Physicists from Umeå University and Humboldt University in Berlin have solved a mystery that has puzzled scientists for half a century. They show with the help of powerful microscopes that the distance between graphite oxide layers gradually increases when water molecules are added. That is because the surface of graphite oxide is not flat, but varies in thickness with "hills" and "valleys" of nanosize. The new findings are published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Chemical-Free Method to Unzip Carbon Nanotubes into Nanoribbons

Chemical-Free Method to Unzip Carbon Nanotubes into Nanoribbons

Carbon nanotubes “unzipped” into graphene nanoribbons by a chemical process invented at Rice University are finding use in all kinds of projects, but Rice scientists have now found a chemical-free way to unzip them. [More]
