New discovery paves way for silicon of the future

Just imagine taking two extremely ultra-thin materials with different properties and placing one on top of the other, and obtaining a new material with...

Scientists transform the bane of black soot into a boon for water purification

Hitting two birds with one stone, a group of Indian scientists has come up with a new process which promises to help utilize black...
Hyderabad scientists make magnetic graphene for Next Gen digital devices

Scientists developed magnetic graphene for next gen digital devices

The growing popularity of digital devices has spurred the need for integrated circuits that are lightweight, consume ultra-low power and are highly efficient. Technology...
Left) At the beginning of the heat treatment, thin regions of well-aligned carbon atoms can be seen adjacent to the graphene layer that had been previously embedded in the polymer. (Right) High magnification images show layers of carbon atoms that have aligned parallel to the graphene.

Study introduces templated heating of carbon with graphene for high quality graphite

An international tea of scientists led by UNIST has recently discovered a novel approach for creating synthetic graphite with well-oriented crystallites. The discovery offers an...
