With atomic precision, scientists built a testbed to manipulate electrons in entirely new ways with potential applications in quantum computing.
NIBIB-funded researchers are fine-tuning a wearable, cuffless blood pressure monitor. Made of graphene, one of the thinnest materials in the world, the device is worn on the underside of the wrist and can measure blood pressure with comparable accuracy to a standard blood pressure cuff.
In a paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, a novel composite of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and nano-zero valent iron (nZVI) was developed via a green and facile approach, utilizing the extract of Atriplex halimus leaves as a stabilizing and reducing agent.
A recent study published in the journal Nature Communications addresses this problem by constructing highly aligned graphene oxide nanochannels for sustainable energy production using a freeze-casting process.
A recent study published in the journal Nano Letters examines graphene's viability as a conducting neural surface capable of promoting cellular adhesion, nerve branching, and expansion.
A team of engineers has created centimeter-scale structures that are composed of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) and loaded with hundreds of billions of hollow aligned fibers (nanotubes).
A unique two-dimensional (2D) nanoconfinement approach has been proposed to improve the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) activity of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with low conductivity.
A recent study published in Scientific Reports focuses on the thermohydraulic analysis of covalent and noncovalent functionalized graphene nanoplatelets as nanofluids inside a circular tube fitted with twisted tape inserts with 45° and 90° helix angles.
Graphene is a two-dimensional material that could potentially have a significant impact on next-gen technology, but it could be argued that nobody agrees about what exactly that material is - with manufacturers offering a range of materials with different characteristics, all sold under the umbrella term "graphene".
An article published in Communications Materials demonstrated the formation of condensation-induced droplets with high non-wetting properties and contact angles of approximately 180 degrees on a graphene monolayer exposed to a humid environment on both sides.
