Researchers turn tiny graphene disks into electromagnets

Researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Universität Duisburg-Essen, CENTERA Laboratories, Indian Institute of Technology, University of Maryland and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have used graphene disks to demonstrate light-induced transient magnetic fields from a plasmonic circular current with extremely high efficiency. 

The effective magnetic field at the plasmon resonance frequency of the graphene disks (3.5 THz) is evidenced by a strong ( ~ 1°) ultrafast Faraday rotation ( ~ 20 ps). In accordance with reference measurements and simulations, the team estimated the strength of the induced magnetic field to be on the order of 0.7 T under a moderate pump fluence of about 440 nJ cm−2.

Purdue team claims graphene's thermal conductance properties may not be as impressive as previously thought

Purdue researchers have examined graphene's thermal properties and found they may not be as revolutionary as previously thought. 

Graphene is often touted as the world's best heat conductor, surpassing diamond - which was previously thought to be able to transfer the most heat the quickest. Diamond’s thermal conductivity is generally understood to be about 2,000 W/(m K). But when scientists started measuring graphene’s thermal conductivity, early estimates reached above 5,000 W/(m K). However, subsequent experimental measurements and modeling have refined graphene’s thermal conductivity and brought the number down to around 3,000, which is still quite better than diamond. The Purdue team focused n this graphene property and found something altogether different.
