Observing the spread of the Helminth Virus - Warframe
Publicațiile UE Metadate publicare Special feature: the dawn of the graphene age. Graphene has been presented as a miracle material since it was first isolated by researchers of the University of Manchester in From making our computers 1 times faster to enabling bionic devices, cleaning up radioactive waste or desalinising water in seconds, cerere helmint seemed to be no limit to what we could possibly do with this one atom-thick Mai mult crystal.
Yet, almost 15 years later, the truth is that graphene still has to fully deliver on its cerere helmint. The main problem used to lie in cost and mass scale production, although research efforts have enabled a significant price drop and scale-up of production capacities over the past few years.
Whilst this remains an issue, stakeholders are now pointing at the lack of standardisation as the main obstacle on the path to commercial products.
In Europe, it is hoped the Graphene Flagship will solve these problems.
These include Airbus winglets made of graphene composites, a motorcycle helmet with graphene coating, a new viscoelastic graphene-polymer sensor, amongst others. The common trait between all these innovations? When combined with composites or plastics, for instance, graphene does wonders in terms of overall material strength or thermal conductivity.
From smart textiles to graphene-reinforced polymers, health monitoring wearables and position sensors, our special feature section cerere helmint how graphene can cast a wide net across multiple industrial sectors.
