GRAPHENE: “Activated graphene boosts supercaps”

Brookhaven National Laboratory recently characterized activated graphene fabricated at the University of Texas-Austin, concluding that it had an power density that could rival batteries, at a quick-recharge rate that exceeded batteries, and a lifetime of at least 10,000 charge/discharge cycles.

Exploring the Potential Applications of Graphene-Based Devices

Researchers have attempted to use graphene as a replacement for silicon in semiconductor devices. The problem with graphene in its unaltered form is that it does not have a band gap. The basic idea is to chemically modify the graphene so that it retains its unusually high mobility, but introduces a band gap to […]
