Avadain kicks off second crowdfunding round to raise up to $3.6 million

U.S-based graphene technology licensing company, Avadain, recently launched its second
crowdfunding round to raise up to $3.6 million on the Netcapital funding portal. This follows
raising over $600,000 in January from angel groups Harvard Business School Alumni Network and Keiretsu Forum, and $1.36 million in its first crowdfunding round last year.  Avadain also attracted a $3.87 million government grants in 2022.

Avadain says it is the only company known to have a technology capable of manufacturing large (50-100 microns), thin (2-5 atomic layers), and nearly defect free graphene flakes cost-effectively in industrial volumes.

Haydale supplies graphene materials for audio equipment by Rega Research

Haydale has announced it has supplied audio equipment manufacturer Rega Research ("Rega") with its mechanically enhanced prepreg for improved sound quality on its latest turntable.

Using Haydale's HDPlas technology, the graphene-enhanced prepreg has been applied into the manufacturing process for Rega's award-winning turntables. The mechanically enhanced prepreg has been combined into the stressed skin design of the plinth and bonded to the core material to increase the stiffness of the part by 11% reducing resonance and improving sound quality.

Researchers gain new insight on the role of quantum geometry in allowing 'magic angle graphene' to become a superconductor

Researchers from Ohio State University, The University of Texas at Dallas and Japan's National Institute for Materials Science have reported new evidence of how graphene, when twisted to a precise angle, can become a superconductor, moving electricity with no loss of energy.

The team announced their finding of the key role that quantum geometry plays in allowing this twisted graphene to become a superconductor.

Industrial production of graphene commences in Kerala

It was reported that industrial production of graphene recently commenced in Kerala, India, with the manufacturing beginning at Carborundum Universal Limited under the Murugappa Group. 

Carborundum Universal has designed a special project, Grapheno, as part of the production of the nanomaterial. It had set up a lab and a plant spread over 12,000 sq ft at Kakkanad as part of the initiative. The company has reportedly signed agreements with Manchester University, IIT Chennai, the Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) and others for industrial research.

Researchers achieve nanometer resolution measurement of the flow of electrons in graphene

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Japan's National Institute for Materials Science have directly measured, for the first time at nanometer resolution, the fluid-like flow of electrons in graphene. The results could have applications in developing new, low-resistance materials, where electrical transport would be more efficient.

Graphene is a pure electrical conductor, making it an ideal material to study electron flow with very low resistance. Here, the researchers intentionally added impurities at known distances and found that electron flow changes from gas-like to fluid-like as temperatures rise.

Researchers develop graphene-nanowire 'sandwich' thermal interface for better electronics

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and MIT have demonstrated a 3D graphene-nanowire “sandwich” thermal interface that enables an ultralow thermal resistance of ∼0.24 mm2·K/W that is about 1 order of magnitude smaller than those of solders and several orders of magnitude lower than those of thermal greases, gels, and epoxies.

In addition, the new 3D graphene-nanowire “sandwich” thermal interface also boasts a low elastic and shear moduli of ∼1 MPa like polymers and foams. It exhibits excellent long-term reliability with >1000 cycles over a broad temperature range from −55 °C to 125 °C. This nanostructured thermal interface material can greatly benefit a variety of electronic systems and devices by allowing them to operate at lower temperatures or at the same temperature but with higher performance and higher power density.

Haydale receives $312,930 Innovate UK grant

Haydale Graphene Industries has been awarded GBP258,547 (around USD$312,930) of funding by Innovate UK, the UK's innovation agency.

Haydale will use the funding to develop imaging techniques to characterize 2D materials, including graphene, to improve the compatibility and material selection processes. The Company explained that current methods for characterizing 2D materials for use in application are "time consuming." It noted that the program will have access to graphene in every format from raw material to finished product to develop new techniques not used before to image a range of nanomaterials.
