  • "The graphene advances have triggered interest in other 2D materials"

    Enrique Sacristán | 31 October 2017 10:30

    Graphene is starring the largest European research initiative to date, Graphene Flagship, but within this megaproject are also being promoted studies of other two-dimensional materials, such as TMD. Their interesting properties can be applied in electronics, spintronics and a third field: valleytronics, as the physicist Dr. Lucian Covaci of the University of Antwerp explains in this interview.

  • Graphene set to go from the lab to the marketplace

    Enrique Sacristán | Athens | 30 September 2017 08:00

    In the future, the exceptional properties of graphene will make car seats and aircraft antenna protection enclosures lighter, which will reduce fuel consumption. These are just two examples of the uses of this revolutionary material exhibited during the last week of September in Athens, where companies and research centres presented their latest results for producing it at an industrial level.

  • The material of the future strives to be profitable

    Laura Chaparro | 27 September 2017 11:53

    Due to its excellent properties, graphene aims to revolutionize not only industry, but also our daily lives, with devices of unprecedented flexibility. But before making history, it has to face its main obstacle: low profitability. Scientists from the European project Gladiator present this week at the Graphene Week in Athens a new technique and methodology to monitor the growth of graphene th...

  • "We print Lego-stack devices with graphene and other 2D materials inks"

    Enrique Sacristán | 13 March 2017 09:00

    Professor Cinzia Casiraghi leads a laboratory specializing in graphene and other 2-Dimensional materials at the University of Manchester (United Kingdom), with which they manufacture photodetectors and electronic memories by means of ink-jet printing. Getting up to this point has not been an easy task for this Italian engineer, as she explained during the meeting Women in Graphene held recently...

  • We attended the bond of two stars of chemistry: graphene and porphyrin

    SINC | 03 January 2017 08:09

    Porphyrins, the same molecules that convey oxygen in haemoglobin and absorb light during photosynthesis, can be joined to the material of the future, graphene, to give it new properties. This was recently shown by a team of scientists at the Technical University of Munich, in which a Spanish researcher also participated. The resulting hybrid structures could be used in the field of molecular el...

  • Lead islands in a sea of graphene magnetise the material of the future

    SINC | 15 December 2014 17:00

    Researchers in Spain have discovered that if lead atoms are intercalated on a graphene sheet, a powerful magnetic field is generated by the interaction of the electrons’ spin with their orbital movement. This property could have implications in spintronics, an emerging technology promoted by the European Union to create advanced computational systems.
