New technology could spur 'a graphene-driven industrial revolution'

2 posts in this topic

EXETER, England, June 25 (UPI) -- Scientists at the University of Exeter say they've developed a way to make graphene better, cheaper, faster -- and at mass scale.

Lead researcher Monica Craciun says the technology, known as the nanoCVD system, promises to usher in "a graphene-driven industrial revolution."

 

Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms, organized a honeycomb like structure. The material is super strong, flexible and conductive.

"The vision for a 'graphene-driven industrial revolution' is motivating intensive research on the synthesis of high quality and low cost graphene," Craciun said in a press release. "Currently, industrial graphene is produced using a technique called chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Although there have been significant advances in recent years in this technique, it is still an expensive and time consuming process."
