Physicists produce a potentially revolutionary material: Artificial graphene

A new breed of ultra thin super-material has the potential to cause a technological revolution. "Artificial graphene" should lead to faster, smaller and lighter...

A brighter future for filtered seawater

MIT researchers evaluate graphene’s potential for making desalination economically viable. The challenge of dwindling fresh-water supplies looms ever larger as droughts become more common and...

New boron nanomaterial may be possible

Researchers from Brown University have shown experimentally that a boron-based competitor to graphene is a very real possibility. Graphene has been heralded as a wonder...

New graphene treatment could unleash new uses

Graphene, a two-dimensional array of carbon atoms, has shown great promise for a variety of applications, but for many suggested uses the material requires...

Graphene Nanoribbons With Nanopores Help Fast DNA Sequencing

The instructions for building all of the body’s proteins are contained in a person’s DNA, a string of chemicals that, if unwound and strung...

Direct ‘writing’ of artificial cell membranes on graphene

Writing in Nature Communications, researchers at The University of Manchester led by Dr Aravind Vijayaraghavan, and Dr Michael Hirtz at the Karlsruhe Institute of...

Stanford scientists use DNA to assemble a transistor from graphene

DNA is the blueprint for life. Could it also become the template for making a new generation of computer chips based not on silicon,...

Jagged graphene can slice into cell membranes

Researchers from Brown University have shown how tiny graphene microsheets — ultra-thin materials with a number of commercial applications — could be big trouble...

Ferroelectric-graphene system could improve data processing

Researchers at MIT have proposed a new system that combines ferroelectric materials — the kind often used for data storage — with graphene, a...

Spot-welding graphene nanoribbons atom by atom

Scientists at Aalto University and Utrecht University have created single atom contacts between gold and graphene nanoribbons. In their article published in Nature Communications, the...
