How can graphene be used?
Graphene could have a significant impact across industries and sectors such as electronics, medicine, aerospace, automotives, energy storage, water desalination, coatings and paints, solar technologies, oil and communications.
Examples of potential applications for graphene include:
- New medical / living tissue technologies, including rapid DNA sequencing, targeted drug delivery, tissue regeneration and bionic implants such as artificial retinas
- Light, ultra-efficient supercapacitors, a thousand times faster than standard batteries
- Light, flexible, shatter-proof touchscreens for mobile phones, tablets and wearable technology
- Use, along with other materials, in electronic components in post-silicon age
