Setting the standard for graphene
New Materials Thumb
National Physical Laboratory (NPL) : 22 July, 2015  (Company News)
The University of Manchester and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have joined forces by holding the Graphene UK Standardisation Workshop at the National Graphene Institute (NGI). Key figures from the graphene supply chain worked together to provide input into a White Paper and discuss next steps for setting up a graphene centre of excellence focussed on characterisation, metrology and standardisation. This will be based primarily at the NGI and NPL, but utilising key capability from other institutes and industries.

Graphene film for efficient cooling of electronics
New Materials Thumb
Chalmers University of Technology : 23 July, 2015  (Technical Article)
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a method for efficiently cooling electronics using graphene-based film. The film has a thermal conductivity capacity that is four times that of copper. Moreover, the graphene film is attachable to electronic components made of silicon, which favours the film’s performance compared to typical graphene characteristics shown in previous, similar experiments.

Layered semiconducting black arsenic phosphorus alternative to silicon
New Materials Thumb
Technical University of Munich, Technische Universität München (TUM) : 24 July, 2015  (Technical Article)
Graphene, the only one atom thick carbon network, achieved overnight fame with the 2010 Nobel Prize. But now comes competition: Such layers can also be formed by black phosphorous. Chemists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now developed a semiconducting material in which individual phosphorus atoms are replaced by arsenic. In a collaborative international effort, American colleagues have built the first field-effect transistors from the new material.
