Graphene successfully turned into a superconductor

Jan 19, 2017

Researchers at the University of Cambridge, managed to activate graphene's potential to superconduct by coupling it with a material called praseodymium cerium copper oxide (PCCO). The researchers suggest that superconductive graphene could have interesting applications; It could be used to create new types of superconducting quantum devices for high-speed computing, and it might also be used to prove the existence of a form of superconductivity known as "p-wave" superconductivity, which academics have been struggling to verify for many years.

Graphene's ability to superconduct has been speculated but thus far has only been achieved by doping it with, or by placing it on, a superconducting material - a process that can compromise some of its other properties. "Placing graphene on a metal can dramatically alter the properties so it is technically no longer behaving as we would expect," the team stated. "What you see is not graphene's intrinsic superconductivity, but simply that of the underlying superconductor being passed on."

McLaren unveils a titanium-graphene watch

Jan 19, 2017

McLaren, the British racing team/supercar manufacturer, has announced the new RM 50-03 Tourbillon Split Seconds Chronograph Ultralight McLaren F1. The watch's mechanism weighs only 7 grams and the entire watch just 40, with the help of a graphene, titanium and carbon fiber composite.

It was reported that McLaren's Applied Technologies division has been working with the National Graphene Institute on applications for graphene, out of which high-end watchmaker Richard Mille (working in collaboration with McLaren), constructed the three-part case, with the titanium and carbon-fiber movement at its center.

Graphene impressions from China, 2017

Jan 19, 2017

The Graphene-Info team spent the last 2 weeks in China, on a trip that included participation in the Printed & Flexible Electronics China 2017 conference, some OLED-related meetings, and a fascinating 2-day visit to the Wuxi Graphene Center.

The Chinese graphene market is somewhat shrouded in mystery, as many specifics remain unknown. We set out to find out more exact details on this interesting graphene industry, and came back quite impressed.

Graphene and porphyrins join to create an exciting new material

Jan 08, 2017

Researchers at the Technical University of Munich have found that graphene can be combined with porphyrins, the molecules that convey oxygen in haemoglobin and absorb light during photosynthesis, to get a material with exciting new properties. The resulting hybrid structures could be used in the field of molecular electronics, solar cells and in developing new sensors.

Porphyrins and graphene join to make a new material image

The technique involves growing a graphene layer on a surface of silver to use its catalytic properties. Then, under ultra-high vacuum conditions, porphyrin molecules are added. These lose the hydrogen atoms from their periphery when heated on the metal surface, and they end up connecting to the graphene edges.

Polish team creates transparent cryogenic temperature sensor

Jan 08, 2017

Researchers from the Lodz University of Technology in Poland have designed a transparent, flexible cryogenic temperature sensor with graphene structures as sensing elements. Such sensors could be useful for any field that requires operating in low-temperatures, such as medical diagnostics, space exploration and aviation, processing and storage of food and scientific research.

Making graphene transparent cryogenic temperature sensors

The sensors were repeatedly cooled from room temperature to cryogenic temperature. Graphene structures were characterized using Raman spectroscopy. The observation of the resistance changes as a function of temperature indicates the potential use of graphene in the construction of temperature sensors. The temperature characteristics of the analyzed graphene sensors exhibit no clear anomalies or strong non-linearity in the entire studied temperature range (as compared to the typical carbon sensor).

The Sixth Element and Daopeng unveil new graphene-based anti-corrosion coatings

Jan 08, 2017

The Sixth Element (Changzhou) logoIn a recent coatings event held in China, The Sixth Element and Daopeng Technology presented graphene-based anti-corrosion coatings.

The anti-corrosion coatings based on grapheneSE1132 from The Sixth Element are said to be a milestone for anti-corrosion applications in marine environment. Adding 1% graphene to the primer, formulated with only 25% zinc powder, more than 3000 hours can be achieved in the salt spray test. Compared to conventional anti-corrosion systems using 70%-80% zinc powder, this new formulation with 1% graphene reduces the necessary zinc amount by more than 50%.
