Chalmers team designs a graphene-based detector that may revolutionize space telescopes

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology have demonstrated a graphene-based detector with the potential to revolutionize the sensors used in next-generation space telescopes. Beyond superconductors, there are few materials that can meet the requirements for making ultra-sensitive and fast terahertz (THz) detectors for astronomy. Chalmers researchers have shown that engineered graphene adds a new material paradigm for THz heterodyne detection.

"Graphene might be the only known material that remains an excellent conductor of electricity/heat even when having, effectively, no electrons. We have reached a near zero-electron scenario in graphene, also called Dirac point, by assembling electron-accepting molecules on its surface. Our results show that graphene is an exceptionally good material for THz heterodyne detection when doped to the Dirac point," says Samuel Lara-Avila, assistant professor at the Quantum Device Physics Laboratory and lead author of the paper.

Mason Graphite sells NanoXplore shares for over $21 million

Mason Graphite logoNanoXplore logoMason Graphite has announced the sale of its investment in NanoXplore - the Company sold 22,188,333 common shares for a total net consideration of CAD$28.2 million (around USD$21.5 million). These common shares, representing 18.3% of NanoXplore, were acquired through various private placements by NanoXplore at a total cost of $4.5 million. After this sale, Mason Graphite no longer holds any common shares of NanoXplore.

The shares were sold to a group of buyers that included Martinrea International, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, and Investissement Quebec. As of today, Martinrea holds 30,199,800 shares of NanoXplore which represents approximately 25% of the total outstanding shares of the Corporation.

Applied Graphene Materials launches graphene-enhanced thermally conductive epoxy paste adhesives

Applied Graphene Materials logoApplied Graphene Materials recently added new adhesive materials to their portfolio, aimed at the Space and Defense sectors. These are said to be two unique graphene-enhanced thermally conductive epoxy paste adhesive systems, called AGM TP300 and AGM TP400

These novel epoxy adhesive systems reportedly exhibit high levels of thermal conductivity (between 3 and 6 W/mK), combined with excellent mechanical, adhesive and outgassing performance. Most significantly these properties are achieved with cured resin densities as low as 40% that of competitive conductive adhesives on the market. AGM’s TP 300/400 products are therefore highly versatile, while providing end users with significant savings in both mass and cost.

Korean scientists develop graphene electrode to enable next-gen perovskite solar cells

Several research institutions in South Korea are actively conducting research and development on next-generation solar cells, heightening expectations for commercialization. The research team led by Prof. Yoon Soon-gil of Chungnam National University has developed a new graphene electrode to produce perovskite solar cells at a low temperature. In addition, the team led by Prof. Choi Kyoung-jin of the School of Materials Science and Engineering at UNIST has developed a new concept tandem solar cell using transparent conductive adhesives (TCA).

The graphene electrode developed by Professor Yoon’s team can help create a perovskite solar cell at a low temperature and can raise both safety and economic efficiency.
