Korean researchers find that stress may have a useful effect on graphene

A team of researchers at the Institute of Basic Science in Korea recently released the results of a study that indicates stress stimulates further reactions in graphene and may actually be beneficial for its functionality.

The team found that the crystal structure of copper substrates, which are usually used for graphene synthesis, affects the addition of functionalities to graphene. Using different crystal structures such as ‘Copper 001′, ‘Copper 110′ and ‘Copper 111′ as substrates, the additional reactions of the graphene’s functions were observed and the reaction was found to be the fastest and most uniform on copper 111 substrates.

Directa Plus and Skanska launch trial of graphene-enhanced asphalt

Directa Plus logoDirecta Plus announced the start of a trial of re-surfacing a section of a UK road in Curbridge, Oxfordshire with materials containing its G+ graphene substance. Thew trial will be in collaboration with Skanska, the leading Sweden-based project development and construction group. Directa Plus partnered with Iterchimica, an Italy-based leader in products that enhance asphalt performance, to carry out the trial.

For the trial, the companies will refurbish the two upper layers of a 750m-long section of road, comparing asphalt concrete containing the graphene super modifier. New technologies such as the super modifier had the potential to vastly improve the quality of road surfaces throughout Europe and the wider world, according to Directa Plus.

Talga launches commercial-scale trial of graphene coating on ocean-going cargo vessel

Talga Resources, advanced battery anode materials and graphene additives provider, has announced a commercial-scale trial of a graphene-enhanced coating applied to a 33,000 tonne container ship.

The 700m2 coating of the cargo vessel’s hull is part of advanced testing of Talga’s functionalized graphene (Talphene) additive as a performance booster for existing commercial marine coatings.

NanoGraphene and Solar Quartz Technologies to work together on graphene-enhanced solar products

NanoGraphene has teamed up with Solar Quartz to develop graphene-enhanced solar industry products and new applications. The two companies aim to enhance the generating potential of solar panels to above 40%.

The partners plan to utilize their extensive experience and knowledge of high purity quartz and solar-grade silicon production industries together to develop new graphene-enhanced solar grade materials, applications and products with remarkable new attributes.

Superconductivity in bilayer graphene can be turned on or off with a voltage change

An international team of researchers from Spain, the U.S., China and Japan has found that superconductivity in bilayer graphene can be turned on or off with a small voltage change, increasing its usefulness for electronic devices. This follows previous findings regarding twisted bilayer graphene and its ability to exhibit alternating superconducting and insulating regions.

"It's kind of a holy grail of physics to create a material that has superconductivity at room temperature," University of Texas at Austin physicist Allan MacDonald said. "So that's part of the motivation of this work: to understand high-temperature superconductivity better."
