Laboratories, Inc. is excited to announce the drastic expansion of
their product line to include several new novel 2D graphene-like
layered materials. In addition to graphene, the company has begun
offering liquid suspensions of atomically thin molybdenum disulfide
(MoS2), tungsten disulfide (WS2) - both transition metal
dichalcogenides (TMD's) - and boron nitride (BN) through its online
store, the Graphene Supermarket. The suspensions are stable,
safe-to-handle and highly versatile; the flakes may be easily deposited
on the top of any substrate.

"These new materials have outstanding commercial potential because
they can address a void in multi-billion dollar markets, allowing for
the advancement of new and emerging technologies such as printable
electronics, thin-film-transistors, optoelectronic devices, and new
types of environmentally-friendly light sources." said Graphene
Laboratories CEO Dr. Elena Polyakova. She continued, "The materials
readily can be produced in large volumes, and our team is ready to
scale-up our production to satisfy customer demand."
Graphene - the material which won Manchester University scientists
the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics - has made waves in the scientific
community for its outstanding properties. Since then, however, its
intrinsic limitations have been realized, including its lack of a
band-gap. These challenges have led scientists to become increasingly
interested in other 2-dimensional materials.
MoS2, WS2, and BN have many remarkable properties of their own,
outperforming graphene in a variety of ways. These materials have a
direct band-gap, and if being used for electronic applications exhibit
a high current ON/OFF ratio. In addition, the direct band-gap is the
reason for their high level of photoluminescence, giving them
applications in optoelectronic devices.
Commenting on the expanded product line, Chief Technology Officer
Dr. Daniel Stolyarov said "Our team has been working with graphene
materials for about five years now. We have been amazed at the
properties of graphene, and are equally excited about these new novel
2D graphene-like materials. Though not a replacement to graphene, these
new members of the family of 2D materials have properties which are
complimentary to it. Together with graphene, these 2D materials form a
toolkit to be employed in many emerging technologies."
