Scalable engineering of 2D porous carbons from solid-state mechanical grinding/ball milling

NanoWerk.com - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 16:22
Due to the unique physical and chemical characteristics, such as good electrical conductivity, low weight, large surface areas, high electrochemical activity, and facile doping of heteroatoms or inorganic species, there are increasing demands of fabricating two-dimensional (2D) porous carbon for lithium-ion batteries, supercapacitors, electrochemical catalysts and many other emerged applications in energy storage and conversion. Researchers now have developed a fast, scalable, and eco-friendly active-salt-templating strategy to engineer different types of 2D porous carbons.

New T-wave detector uses waves of the electronic sea in graphene

NanoWerk.com - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 14:33
Researchers have created a graphene-based terahertz detector. Their device doubles as a sensitive detector and a spectrometer operating in the terahertz range, and it?s also a tool for studying plasmons in two-dimensional materials. All of these things existed before, but they took up a whole optical table. Researchers packed the same functionality into a dozen micrometers.
