Stanford researchers have shown that a few layers of atomically thin materials, stacked like sheets of paper atop hot spots, can provide the same insulation as a sheet of glass 100 times thicker. In the near term, thinner heat shields will enable
Graphene can come from graphite, but borophene? There’s no such thing as borite. Unlike its carbon cousin, two-dimensional borophene can’t be reduced from a larger natural form. Bulk boron is usually only found in combination with other elements, and is certainly not layered,
Business thrives on competition. When suppliers offer similar but incommensurable products, it is not hard to imagine this having a negative impact on companies trying to work with the products and the industry as a whole. Such has been the case for
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a graphene assembled film that has more than 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film – despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene. The graphene film shows potential
Graphene has many incredible properties, but to date it has been difficult to use on a large scale in industry due to the fact it loses its properties and goes back to its origin graphite when it is used in that scale.
