The 90 nanometre material is said to be a 1000 times finer than a human hair and is able to rapidly heat up to 160°C under natural sunlight in an open environment.

Chinese researchers achieve photo-induced ultrafast active ion transport through graphene oxide membranes

Researchers from the Chinese Tsinghua University and CAS demonstrated a coupled photon-electron-ion transport phenomenon through graphene oxide membranes. Using the energy of light, cations are able to move thermodynamically uphill over a broad range of concentrations, at rates orders of magnitude faster than that via simple diffusion.

Based on this mechanism, the team further developed photonic ion switches, photonic ion diodes, and photonic ion transistors as the fundamental elements for active ion sieving and artificial photosynthesis on synthetic nanofluidic circuits.

Graphene Composites exceeds crowdfunding target for graphene bulletproof shields

Graphene Composites, a UK-based company developing graphene-enhanced bulletproof shields, has exceeded its crowdfunding target. GC attempted to raise £300,000 on Crowdcube, but ended up raising £510,680 (around 676,625 USD).

Once Graphene Composites had hit its crowdfunding target, the company sent out a message to its supporters saying: “Thank You - by investing in GC, you have not only invested in a company that should provide you with a healthy return and strong dividends, you are also enabling us to develop and deliver products that will truly improve the quality of life for many around the world. For example, our GC Shield active shooter protection in schools now, and eventually our Lightning Harvester renewable energy sources. Thank You, from all of us on the GC Team”.

ECD Lacrosse and Global Graphene Group (G3) develop graphene-enhanced Lacrosse gear

ECD Lacrosse, manufacturer of high quality lacrosse equipment, has teamed up with Global Graphene Group (G3) to develop ECD's Rebel +Graphene heads, which were released in a limited edition.

The customized composite of G3’s graphene with ECD’s polymer reportedly benefits from graphene's properties, including its light weight and impact resistance. The resulting Rebel +Graphene lacrosse heads exhibit increased impact strength, increased stiffness, and no perceptible additional weight.

The VCEDA loans $1.5 million to CRDR to open a graphene R&D center

US-based Carbon Research and Development Company (CRDC), a producer of graphene materials derived from bio-mass, announced that the Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority has loaned $1.5 million to the company towards its carbon research and development project in Wise, Virginia, USA.

CRDC says that according to its plan, the new center will research graphene production technologies, in addition to new graphene applications. CRDC's process converts coal and wood chips into graphene.

Graphene and gold join to promote ultrasensitive biosensors for disease detection

Researchers in the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering have developed a unique new device using graphene that provides the first step toward ultrasensitive biosensors to detect diseases at the molecular level with excellent efficiency.

Ultrasensitive biosensors for probing protein structures could greatly improve diagnosis of a wide variety of diseases extending to both humans and animals. These include Alzheimer’s disease, Chronic Wasting Disease, and mad cow disease—disorders related to protein misfolding. Such biosensors could also lead to improved technologies for developing new pharmaceutical compounds.

Graphene and cobalt used together to create new electromagnetic devices

Researchers from IMDEA Nanociencia and other European centers have discovered that the combination of graphene with cobalt offers relevant properties in the field of magnetism. This breakthrough sets the stage for the development of new logic devices that can store large data amounts quickly and with reduced energy consumption.

One of the latest technologies for digitally encoding information is spin orbitronics, which not only exploits the charge of the electron (electronics) and its spin (spintronics), but also the interaction of the spin with its orbital motion, offering a multitude of properties.
