Eco-Friendly Micro-Supercapacitors Using Fallen Leaves

Eco-Friendly Micro-Supercapacitors Using Fallen Leaves

A research team has developed a graphene-inorganic-hybrid micro-supercapacitor made of leaves using femtosecond direct laser writing lithography. The advancement of wearable electronic devices is synonymous with innovations in flexible energy storage devices. Of the various energy storage devices, micro-supercapacitors have drawn a great deal of interest for their high electrical power density, long lifetimes, and short charging times.

Sensors Set to Revolutionise Brain Controlled Robotics

Sensors Set to Revolutionise Brain Controlled Robotics

A novel carbon-based biosensor is set to drive new innovations in brain-controlled robotics. The sensor is made of epitaxial graphene - essentially multiple layers of very thin, very strong carbon - grown directly onto a silicon-carbide-on-silicon substrate. The result is a highly scalable novel sensing technology that overcomes three major challenges of graphene-based biosensing: corrosion, durability and skin contact resistance

Graphene for Solar Power

Graphene for Solar Power

By 2050, the European Union aims to be climate neutral. In pursuit of this goal, the first half of 2020 saw renewables — including solar, hydro, wind and bioenergy — produce more electricity than fossil fuels in the EU.

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

The discovery in 2018 of superconductivity in two single-atom-thick layers of graphene stacked at a precise angle of 1.1 degrees (called 'magic'-angle twisted bilayer graphene) came as a big surprise to the scientific community. Since the discovery, physicists have asked whether magic graphene's superconductivity can be understood using existing theory, or whether fundamentally new approaches are required - such as those being marshalled to understand the mysterious ceramic compound that superconducts at high temperatures.

Monitoring Glucose Levels, No Needles Required

Monitoring Glucose Levels, No Needles Required

Noninvasive glucose monitoring devices are not currently commercially available in the United States, so people with diabetes must collect blood samples or use sensors embedded under the skin to measure their blood sugar levels. Now, with a new wearable device, less intrusive glucose monitoring could become the norm.

3D Nano-inks Push Industry Boundaries

3D Nano-inks Push Industry Boundaries

A new, 3D-printable polymer nanocomposite ink has incredible properties — and many applications in aerospace, medicine and electronics. Mechanical engineering researchers have created a way to make a 3D-printable nanocomposite polymeric ink that uses carbon nanotubes — known for their high tensile strength and lightness. This revolutionary ink could replace epoxies — and understanding why its properties are so fantastic is a first step toward its mass use.
