Cambridge leads the charge to use Graphene in zero gravity

Long Read

Cambridge researchers have been using the 'vomit comet' to test graphene’s application in space. Graphene has the potential to open thousands of new opportunities in material science and could transform how Engineers create systems for use in space. For the first time, graphene has been tested in a...

Graphene solar panels developed that generates energy when it rains

Quick Read

Whilst Solar Power has made significant steps forwards over the last decade there has always been the problem of what happens at night. The new solution proposed by scientists from the Ocean University of China and Yunnan Normal University in China is to produce energy from raindrops. The...

Wearable graphene wrist patch accurately monitors diabetes through sweat

Quick Read

South Korea’s Institute for Basic Science (IBS) has developed a wearable graphene-based armband which is capable of monitoring diabetes by analysing the sweat of the wearer. The patch is made up of electrochemically active materials on a hybrid of gold-doped graphene and a serpentine-shape gold mesh. As IBS’s...

New hybrid structure engineered by scientists

Quick Read

A team of international scientists have engineered a new hybrid structure that they claim possess characteristics not found in natural materials. The research, led by Exeter University, shows how the unique properties possessed by graphene can be used to control and manipulate electromagnetic radiation over different wave lengths...

Scientists create microphone with ultrasonic potential

Quick Read

A graphene based microphone, which is almost 32 times more sensitive than those of standard nickel construction, has been developed by scientists in Serbia. Researchers from the University of Belgrade have created a vibrating membrane from graphene. The membrane is what converts the microphone’s sound to a current....

World’s first graphene lightbulb

Quick Read

The world’s first graphene lightbulb has been created by researchers at Manchester’s National Graphene Institute and will soon be available on the market. The structure of graphene means it has high strength and can aid with the efficiency of solar panels and batteries.
