Building large graphene aerogel walls

Highly compressible graphene aerogels possess extraordinary properties that exceed the performance of natural materials ? superior compressive elasticity; ultrahigh porosity; outstanding tolerance for harsh environment; large specific surface area; high electrical and thermal conductivity. Now, researchers have fabricated graphene aerogel ‘bricks’ that can be assembled into much larger aerogel structures. These highly oriented and dense microstructures possesses arbitrary macroscale, outstanding compressive strength, superelasticity, and high conductivity.

Quantum computing with graphene plasmons

In their proposed graphene quantum logic gate, scientists show that if single plasmons are created in nanoribbons made out of graphene, two plasmons in different nanoribbons can interact through their electric fields.

Stickier than expected: Hydrogen binds to graphene in 10 femtoseconds

Graphene is an extraordinary material consisting of pure carbon just a single atomic layer thick. It is extremely stable, strong and conductive. In electronics, however, graphene has crucial disadvantages. It cannot be used as a semiconductor, since it has no bandgap. Now researchers have produced an ”atomic scale movie” showing how hydrogen atoms can chemically bind to graphene to produce a bandgap in one of the fastest reactions ever studied.

How to purify water with graphene

Graphene is capable of purifying water, making it drinkable, without further chlorination. Capturing bacterial cells, it forms flakes that can be easily extracted from the water. Graphene separated by ultrasound can be reused.
