Graphenest launches two graphene products with pre-order campaign

Graphenest logoGraphenest has launched two products, based on a proprietary graphene production method, now available to pre-order with a campaign price for a limited time.

The first product is HexaShield, a graphene-based paintable coating for RF electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radiation shielding. It reportedly provides drastic weight reduction, and reduced manufacturing cost as compared to metals, while achieving the required protection for the Gigahertz frequency range.

Zenyatta Ventures announces name change to ZEN Graphene Solutions

Zenyatta logoZenyatta Ventures has announced that it has obtained TSX Venture Exchange approval and has changed its name from “Zenyatta Ventures Ltd.” to “ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd.”. The name change reflects the Company’s decision to focus its development plans for the Albany Graphite Project on the graphene nano-material product opportunity.

The Company stated that the unique genesis and microcrystalline structure of the high-purity Albany Graphite mineralization gives ZEN a significant competitive advantage in producing mono-layer to few-layer graphene that is in the highest demand. The Company reported that it is presently assessing the various graphene conversion methods developed within its network of collaborative research partners with the goal of defining various scalable, low-cost, low-energy and environmentally friendly production methods.

Researchers catalog graphene defects

Researchers at MIT have produced a catalog of the exact sizes and shapes of defects and holes that would most likely be observed (as opposed to the many more that are theoretically possible) when a given number of atoms is removed from the atomic lattice. The MIT team collaborated on this project with researchers at Lockheed Martin Space and Oxford University.

“It’s been a longstanding problem in the graphene field, what we call the isomer cataloging problem for nanopores,” Michael Strano from MIT says. "For those who want to use graphene or similar two-dimensional, sheet-like materials for applications including chemical separation or filtration", he says, “we just need to understand the kinds of atomic defects that can occur,” compared to the vastly larger number that are never seen".

Haydale signs supply agreement for piezoresistive inks

Haydale logoHaydale has announced that it has signed a supply agreement to provide 76kg of its propriety piezoresistive ink to HP1 Technologies (HP1T) over an 18-month period. The value of the Supply Agreement was not disclosed.

HP1T creates bespoke flexible, printed, functionalized nano carbon-based sensor systems that can measure and collect high quality impact and pressure data. This newly signed supply agreement will see Haydale become HP1T's single supplier of functionalized nano carbon inks.

Graphene enables low-dimensional spintronics at room temperature

Graphene Flagship researchers produced graphene-based spintronics devices that utilize both electron charge and spin at room temperature. Demonstrating the spin’s feasibility for bridging distances of up to several micrometres, these results may open the door to new possibilities for integrating information-processing and storage in a single chip.

The Graphene Flagship program recognizes the potential of spintronics devices made from graphene-related materials. Researchers from different universities successfully showed that it is possible to manipulate graphene’s spin properties in a controlled manner at room temperature. These results inspire new directions in the development of spin-logic devices and quantum computing. “With miniaturization a major driving force behind the electronics industry, graphene opens new possibilities for compacting spin-logic operations with magnetic memory elements in a single platform,” notes Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) Research Professor Stephan Roche, who has been leading the Graphene Flagships Spintronics Work Package since its inception.

Rensselaer team develops a microfluidics-assisted technique to produce macroscopic graphene fibers

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a new microfluidics-assisted technique for developing high-performance macroscopic graphene fibers. Graphene fiber have potential applications in diverse technological areas, from energy storage, electronics, optics, electro-magnetics, and thermal conductors, to structural applications.
