Graphene makes polymers thermally conductive for aerospace and defense

Poor thermal conductivity of polymer composites has long been a deterrent to their mass use in aerospace and defense applications. New research finds that graphene embedded in polymer epoxy resins drastically improves their thermal conductivity, opening doors to their use in demanding thermal management applications. Researchers from Tecnalia and Graphenea...

Mapping electrical properties of large-area graphene

Electrical properties of graphene, such as conductivity, can vary across a wafer, which can impede the industrial acceptance of the material. Spatial inhomogeneity of conductivity results in devices from the same batch having different performance, which is incompatible with large scale manufacturing. It is hence important to have tools to...
