Graphene Flagship researchers have now demonstrated a novel engineering approach to enhance the electrical stability of two-dimensional transistors by carefully tuning the Fermi energy. The results, part of the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL) project within the Graphene Flagship, have been reported in Nature Electronics.
Graphene Flagship Associated Member Costruzioni Meccaniche Luigi Bandera is committed to bridging the gap between research and manufacturing methods for extruding polymers with layered materials.
Graphene Flagship partner Avanzare, Spain, has purchased a new plant to manufacture graphene-enabled products, composites and nanointermediates. Thanks to this recent expansion, the company will become Europe’s biggest graphene producer, levelling with international competitors.
Since graphene’s discovery, researchers have found hundreds of potential applications for this incredibly versatile material. From brain implants to treat neurological disorders, to the next generation of smart textiles, products enabled by graphene and related materials promise to disrupt individuals, industries and societies. In this article, Kari Hjelt, Head of Innovation at the Graphene Flagship, looks at three examples.
The last years have been quite unusual, but this did not get in the way of new innovations from Graphene Flagship members, Partnering Projects and Spearhead Projects around Europe. Here, Francesco Bonaccorso, Deputy Head of Innovation for the Graphene Flagship, looks back at four of the most-read graphene stories from the last year. Read on to learn about how graphene could give us faster mobile phones, safer aircraft and seafaring vessels, and even a new construction material that replicates human bone.
The Graphene Flagship Standardisation Committee pioneered the creation of two new IEC standards in the characterisation of graphene, fundamental to accelerate technology transfer. The new specifications will promote the adoption of graphene and layered materials within key European industrial sectors.
Graphene Flagship researchers are using graphene to develop the ultimate pressure sensor for presence detection.
Graphene Flagship partners use graphene to develop fully flexible NFC devices for home automation applications, including electronic keys.
