Graphene Could Make the Body Armor of the Future

Graphene Could Make the Body Armor of the Future

Graphene, the decade-old super-material, could become the future of body armor, once again proving itself to be one of the most versatile materials on the planet, according to a study published in the November issue of Science. The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, tested the material in a miniature ballistics range […]

Graphene: $10 Bet Leads to Breakthrough in Production of the Wonder Material

Graphene: $10 Bet Leads to Breakthrough in Production of the Wonder Material

A $10 bet led to a breakthrough in production of the wonder material graphene. Thomas Mallouk, professor of chemistry, physics and biology at Penn State University, bet his research associate Nina Kovtyukhova that she could apply her research on boron nitrade to graphene. Kovtyukhova did not believe her methods would be effective to produce graphene […]

Graphene Is the Savior of Clumsy Phone Users

Graphene Is the Savior of Clumsy Phone Users

Graphene has not been in the vocabulary of phone users for very long. First discovered ten years ago, graphene is now deemed the strongest material in the world and is completely flexible. By this definition alone graphene would be an excellent material for building a phone capable of withstanding clumsy phone use; in fact, graphene […]
