New graphene-based coating developed for the protection of paintings

A team of researchers from the Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences of Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH/ ICE-HT), the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University of Patras, and the Center for Colloid and Surface Science (CSGI) of the University of Florence, led by Professor Costas Galiotis, set out to use 'graphene veils' for the protection of paintings against environmental degradation.

The exposure of colors used in artworks to ultraviolet (UV) and visible light in the presence of oxidizing agents, triggers color degradation, fading and yellowing. These degradation mechanisms can lead to irreversible alteration of artworks, which consist of a valuable heritage for humankind. Currently used protective varnishes and coatings are often problematic, as their removal requires the use of solvents, which can adversely affect the underlying work surface.

Graphenea updates on progress of plans for mass production of high quality graphene

The Spain-based Graphenea recently announced that preparations are on track for mass production of 200 mm (8) diameter high quality graphene on Si/SiO2 wafers. Last week cleanroom components arrived to be assembled in a new production space at the company's location in San Sebastian. Production of 200 mm graphene on a new chemical vapor deposition system is expected to be up and running at the beginning of 2017.

The investment in the new lab will increase the company’s production capacity and quality of graphene wafers. The new addition will represent a tenfold expansion of Graphenea's production space, where it currently routinely manufactures high quality graphene with a diameter of 100 mm (4). The production capacity will increase 20-fold with the addition of the new line, to produce 4, 6, and 8 wafers as standard.

Aixtron takes part in “HEA2D” project to investigate the production, qualities, and applications of 2D nanomaterials

Aixtron, a leading provider of deposition equipment, is working together with five partners in the “HEA2D” project to investigate the production, qualities, and applications of 2D nanomaterials.

The joint project is now researching an end-to-end processing chain consisting of various deposition processes for 2D materials, processes for transfer onto plastic foils, and mass integration into plastics components. AIXTRON’s partners for implementing systems technology and integrating materials into plastic molded parts are the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT), Coatema Coating Machinery, and Kunststoff-Institut Lüdenscheid (K.I.M.W.). This work is being supported in terms of nano-analytics and the development of prototype components by the Institutes of “Electronic Materials and Nanostructures” (University of Duisburg-Essen) and “Graphene-based Nanotechnology” (University of Siegen).

New facility for graphene manufacture and R&D launched by The University of Granada

The University of Granada in Spain has launched the Graphene and 2D Semiconductors Laboratory, said to be one of the most complete public laboratories devoted to the manufacture and electric and structural characterization of graphene in Europe. This laboratory is supposedly comparable to that of the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom) or the one in the University of Stanford (United States).

The new facilities are located in the UGR Research Centre for Information Technology and Communication. With an investment of more than half a million euros, the new laboratory is devoted to the manufacture of all kinds and forms of graphene as well as the development of new graphene-based systems for electronic applications which include biosensors, electronic nanodevices for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, and flexible electronics, in addition to wearable devices.

Preheating gas precursors enhances CVD graphene production

Researchers from Israel's Bar Ilan University discovered that preheating the gas precursors in atmospheric-pressure CVD graphene production results in 100% reproducibility, and higher quality graphene sheets.

The role of preheating in graphene CVD growth

The researchers say that the graphene produced in the new method required a lower processing temperature and exhibited 50% less defects compared to graphene made without gas preheating. In addition, all experiments (100% reproducibility) performed with gas heating led to "acceptable quality" graphene - compared to only 15% of the experiments performed without gas preheating.
