The Graphene-Info team would like to wish all of its readers a very happy new year! 2015 has been a busy year for graphene, with many reports of new developments, ideas and progress. Here are the year's top 10 graphene applications, ranked by the number of posts written about them:

  1. Electronics
  2. Sensors
  3. Batteries
  4. Medicine
  5. Composites
  6. Supercapacitors
  7. Coating
  8. 3D printing
  9. Solar
  10. Displays

Electronics was this year's most-mentioned topic, with a considerable amount of interest and developments in the field. Sensors' presence at the second place is a bit of a surprise, as there seemed to be more "action" in topics like composites and 3D printing.

Batteries was last year's number one area of interest, but has dropped to the third place this year. Still, many exciting news have been reported on this topic, like China's Shandong Yuhuang that showcased new graphene batteries, XG Sciences and Boston-Power that have announced a joint development agreement to customize silicon-graphene anode materials for use in lithium-ion battery products, and much, much more.

We look forward to keeping you up-to-date on all that is graphene in 2016!
