Graphene Based Smartphone (Galapad Settler) Graphene researcher and maker Moxi teams up with tablet maker Galapad to release 30,000 of the Android hansets.
A Revolutionary Technology- The material is to technology as the steam engine was to the Industrial Revolution. Today’s race to lead a new industrial revolution is fueled
by economic necessity, national security and the desire to lever it’s myriad advantages.
National University of Singapore and BASF embark on join research- Singapore; Ludwigshafen, Germany- 20 January 2014- The Graphene Research Centre (GRC) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Science and the world's leading chemical company Basf have partnered to develop the use of graphene in organic electronic devices, such as organic light emitting diodes (OLED)................
The Miracle Material?
The one atom material was touted as "the next big thing" even
before its pioneers were handed the Nobel Prize that year. Many believe
it could spell the end for silicon and change the future of computers
and other devices forever.
Has been touted
as the "miracle material" of the 21st Century.
Said to be the
strongest material ever measured, an improvement upon and a replacement
for silicon and the most conductive material known to man, its
properties have sent the science world - and subsequently the media -
into a spin
Our research establishe the one atom material as the strongest material ever
measured, some 200 times stronger than structural steel," mechanical
engineering professor James Hone, of Columbia University stated.
"It would take an elephant, balanced on a pencil, to break
through a sheet of the material the thickness of Saran Wrap [cling film]."
And the way this material can be utilised is as surprising as its properties.
does not just have one application," says Professor Andre Geim, the
current co-holder of the Nobel Prize in physics for his work with the
material at Manchester University.
"It is not even one material. It is a huge range of materials. A good comparison would be to how plastics are used."
has been made of graphene's potential. It can be used for anything from
composite materials - like how carbon-fibre is used currently - to
Since its properties were uncovered, more and more
scientists have been keen to work on projects. About 200 companies and
start-ups are now involved in research around the miracle material. In 2010, it was
the subject of about 3,000 research papers.
And the benefits to
both businesses and to the consumer are obvious - faster and cheaper
devices which are thinner and flexible.
