Next-generation battery technology to feature graphene

Marko Spasenovic

Experiments with graphene in next-generation batteries are highlighting the important role that this material will have in future energy storage solutions.

The domination of lithium-based batteries on the portable energy market continues, due to the low cost and natural abundance of elemental lithium, coupled with the material’s good energy density properties. Rising energy demands pushed forward...

Graphenea provides material for space experiment

Graphenea’s suspended CVD graphene will be used in weightless conditions for testing the possibility of designing a light sail. Light sails are propulsion systems that utilize the pressure of light to move an object through space. Graphenea speaks to Santiago Cartamil-Bueno, leader of GrapheneX, the team of PhD students that will perform the experiment in weightless conditions in the ZARM Drop...

Graphenea opens new graphene oxide pilot plant

Graphenea announces the opening of its new graphene oxide (GO) pilot plant with 1 tonne per annum production capacity. Although Graphenea is already producing GO dispersion, powder, and films, the new plant significantly increases production capacity, simultaneously allowing for higher quality and batch-to-batch reproducibility. The plant houses in-line quality control of each individual batch.

Spin control in graphene at room temperature

Researchers have created a room-temperature spin transistor from graphene and molybdenum disulfide. A spin transistor is an essential component of future spintronic devices that will manipulate electron spin instead of charge for information processing. Using the spin degree of freedom instead of shuttling around charged carriers will lead to orders of magnitude energy savings for all our...
