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.

Will the iPhone 16 use graphene heat sink to solve overheating issues?

Rumors suggest that the iPhone 16 may use a graphene heat sink and a metal battery case to promote better heat transfer.

This follows complaints by iPhone 15 users about overheating, which Apple fixed via software, but the iPhone 16 is rumored to have a hardware solution, too. Apple associated the overheating with poorly optimized software and issued a software fix, but more effective cooling may also help.

MSI to unveil new QD-OLED gaming monitors with graphene heat dispersion technology

MSI, a leading manufacturer of gaming hardware, has announced it will be expanding its QD-OLED gaming monitor lineup. The new monitors will reportedly make use of graphene's thermal conductivity in its heat management technology. 

All models will be equipped with the latest generation of QD-OLED panels and will be available in both curved and flat models. Among other thing, the new monitors will enjoy a fan-less design, enhanced with graphene thermal tech for efficient and silent heat dispersion. This further extends the lifespan of these innovative QD-OLED panels.

GMG updates on commercialization progress

Graphene Manufacturing Group (GMG) has provided a business update on the commercialization progress of THERMAL-XR powered by GMG Graphene.

GMG has announced it has received forward orders of over AU$400k (around USD$255,000) for THERMAL-XR from various distributors and customers worldwide. Most of the value of these orders is conditional on the in-country approval for the THERMAL-XR to be imported from Australia and sold into that country for the product's initial launch.

We interview the organizers of GrapChina, china's leading graphene event

The 2023 China International Graphene Innovation Conference (GRAPCHINA 2023), will be held in Shanghai, China from November 10 to 12, 2023. The conference will be jointly hosted by the National Graphene Innovation Center, Shanghai University and the Graphene Alliance (CGIA). Minyang Lu, the Deputy Secretary-General of the CGIA, was kind enough to answer a few questions we had regarding the upcoming conference.

Hello Minyang, thank you for your time. Can you tell us more about the GRAPCHINA event?

The International Graphene Innovation Conference has been successfully held for nine years. The number of participants has set a new record year each year, and its influence has continued to improve. The nine sessions attracted more than 4,000 enterprises, 23,000 participants and 1,200 experts in new materials field, which came from over 30 countries and regions around the world. At present, it has developed into a gathering place, a vanue and an international event for the world's cutting-edge graphene technology achievements and innovative products. The graphene application expo held simultaneously with the conference, will continuously inject new vitality into the development of the global graphene industry by gathering the global graphene industrialization achievements. 

The 2023 International Graphene Innovation Conference (GRAPCHINA 2023) will be organized by the China Innovation Alliance of the Graphene Industry (CGIA), National Graphene Innovation Center (NGIC) and Shanghai University in Shanghai on November 10-12 of the year 2023. This year, GRAPCHINA 2023 will focus on the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, international cooperation, and industrial and supply chain, we will work with end users to create a number of commercialization forums.
