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.
Graphene has the highest thermal conductivity known to man. But how can we harness this and what can it be used for?
In this video we look at what this means for applications of the future. The possibilities include sports wear, which conducts heat away from athletes' bodies. It can also be used for CPU cooling, meaning graphene electronic devices will be overall more energy efficient.
