#TechTuesday: Graphene aerogels for loudspeakers

The Graphene Flagship is making waves in the loudspeaker industry. Our partners use graphene aerogels to revolutionise a principle conceived of more than a century ago: thermoacoustics, the production of sound by rapidly heating and cooling a material rather than through mechanical vibrations.

Layered materials for energy generation and heat pumps

A conversation with graphene researcher Ilaria Pallecchi, coordinator of the Graphene Flagship Partnering Project MELoDICA. Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are layered materials that offer alternative benefits in many different applications. A good example is thermoelectricity: the direct and reversible conversion of heat into electricity.
