Graphene-infused rubber bands for monitoring health

How about combining graphene with the humble elastic band to make a big difference in the field of health care by using them to monitor motion associated with breathing and heart rate as well as joints? The rubber bands can be infused with graphene and become conductive whilst remaining stretchy. Connect them to a power source and a subtle movement gives a detectable effect on the...

Graphene in Supercapacitors challenged by used cigarette butts!

It seems that Korean scientists having taken the thorny problem of the huge quantity of cigarette butts that are discarded annually across the globe and addressed it by finding a role for them coating electrodes in supercapacitors. They have pyrolysed the cellulose acetate fibres to produce a carbon that can perform better than graphene and carbon nanotubes in terms of storing and...

Graphene turns rubber bands into durable sensors

Normal rubber bands can be turned into strain  sensors  by infusing them with  graphene  flakes, according to researchers at the  University of Surrey  and Trinity College Dublin. The process is predictable, reliable and repeatable, costs only a few pence, and the resulting sensors are durable and comparable in performance with commercial sensors, researcher...

On the edge of graphene

Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have discovered that the conductivity at the edges of graphene devices is different to that of the central material. Local scanning electrical techniques were used to examine the local nanoscale electronic properties of epitaxial graphene, in particular the differences between the edges and central parts of graphene Hall bar devices....
