3-D Graphene — The Future Of Solar Cells?

3-D graphene can function as an effective — and very economical — substitute for the platinum that is commonly used in dye-sensitized solar cells, according to new research from Michigan Technological University. By substituting the newly created and relatively cheap material known as three-dimensional graphene for the very expensive and … [continued]

“Mr. Watson, Come Here. I Have Graphene!”

Scientists at Columbia Engineering have discovered yet another talent in graphene, a unique new material that consists of a sheet of carbon only one atom thick. Graphene is already under the spotlight for its potential use in ultra-efficient electronics, batteries, solar energy, and even desalination, and now it seems that … [continued]
