Nanosheets and graphene: powering sensors, computers

Categories: Latest News.

Nanosheets–materials that are one atom thick–may be the mass-produced (in billions) batteries and electronic building blocks of the future. Think of it powering wearable sensors, for instance, which can determine gait, falls, temperature changes. SmartPlanet: Breakthrough in nanosheets. And, in another pointer to the future item, there’s graphene–a form of graphite, which is conductive and can replace silicon,┬ábut struggling with mass production. Here’s a multi-billion dollar question…
