Scientists at The University of Manchester have ‘re-discovered’ a material, which could make the construction of 2D van der Waals heterostructures easier to build.
Smartphones that charge in seconds, or electric cars in minutes. Energy stroage devices sewn into clothing, or even into skin. Harnessing reneable energy. All of these are possible with graphene.
Graphene is a high surface, high volume, light and stable conducting material, which makes it perfect for use in batteries and energy storage.
A graphene battery could help in the development in all areas of energy storage, including electric cars and storing solar energy.
