New Criterion for Seeking Suitable Substrate Materials for Graphene

New Criterion for Seeking Suitable Substrate Materials for Graphene

Physicists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have developed a criterion with which scientists can seek suitable substrate materials for graphene in a targeted way. Interactions with the substrate material often lead to a loss of the amazing properties that characterize this special form of carbon. Together with partners at other institutions, the scientists were able to demonstrate that the influence exerted by the substrate on the electronic properties of graphene can be estimated by means of a simple structural parameter. The related publication was chosen as the Editor's Suggestion of the journal Physical Review Letters. [More]

Physicists Move Electrons in Graphene Along a Predefined Path

Physicists at the University of Basel have shown for the first time that electrons in graphene can be moved along a predefined path. This movement occurs entirely without loss and could provide a basis for numerous applications in the field of electronics. [More]
Forecast Report on Global Market for Graphene

Forecast Report on Global Market for Graphene

Graphene, which is the world's first 2D material, is ultra-light and extremely tough. The honey comb lattice structure of the material makes it 200 times stronger than steel and extremely flexible. The material is considered an excellent conductor of electricity and has high level of heat resistance as well. [More]
