Circuitbreakers Based on Graphene Could Safeguard the Electrical Grid

Circuitbreakers Based on Graphene Could Safeguard the Electrical Grid

The electrical grid relies on circuitbreakers to protect infrastructure from damage caused by excess current. These circuitbreakers are lubricated using grease, which can stiffen and dry out, threatening the safety of the whole system. To solve this, researchers at the Graphene Flagship have designed maintenance-free circuitbreakers enabled by self-lubricating graphene composites.

HS2 Harnessing the Power of Graphene Reinforced 3D Concrete Printing

HS2 Harnessing the Power of Graphene Reinforced 3D Concrete Printing

In a UK first, on-site 3D reinforced concrete printing is set to deliver environmental, cost and community benefits for Britain's new high speed rail network. The cutting-edge technology, called 'Printfrastructure', will be deployed by HS2 Ltd's London tunnels contractor SCS JV (Skanska Costain STRABAG Joint Venture), in a move that represents a major step forward in construction technology.

Building a Multifunctional Pressure Sensor Using 3D Printing

Building a Multifunctional Pressure Sensor Using 3D Printing

The treatment of many medical issues like abnormal gait and muscular disorders require an accurate sensing of applied pressure. In this regard, flexible pressure sensors that are simple, lightweight, and low-cost, have garnered considerable attention. These sensors are designed and manufactured through 3D printing using conductive polymer composites as their building blocks.
