Latest Research

A collaboration between the University of Manchester and University of Cambridge reports a novel way to improve high-speed characteristics of graphene devices. The work could be used in photodetectors, optical communications – and even a lightning-fast Internet. The team includes Nobel Prize winning scientists Professor Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov.

Prof. Peizhen Kathy Lu, director of Virginia Tech’s Innovative Particulate Materials Laboratory and associate professor of materials science and engineering at the school, was named the 2011 recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award.

University of Michigan engineers are devising 3D carbon nanotubes that may deliver more mechanical, thermal, electrical and chemical properties. Scientists say their new CNT manufacturing process uses capillary forming techniques.
