Graphene can be used to harness solar power

Graphene, which was discovered in 2004 by Manchester University scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, can help in harnessing solar power, some researchers believe. Researchers have long been trying to find potential applications for use of the lightweight, harder-than-a-diamond material. Now, a group of researchers from the University of Manchester and National University of Singapore … Continue reading Graphene can be used to harness solar power

Graphene Batteries Perfect for Electric Vehicles

Li-ion battery technology is magnificent, but truly hampered by its limited power density and its inability to quickly accept or discharge large amounts of energy. Engineering researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute made a sheet of paper from the world’s thinnest material, graphene, and then zapped the paper with a laser or camera flash to blemish … Continue reading Graphene Batteries Perfect for Electric Vehicles
