Graphene set to make waves in multiple markets

Graphene set to make waves in multiple markets
Carbon nanotubes and graphene have been competing head-to-head for many of the same applications in recent years. For most applications, the development of carbon nanotubes has been gradually rising but graphene has been making drastic progress. In the form of oxides or nanoplatelets, graphene is in a better position to fulfil market needs, as it is durable, stretchable and lightweight.

ZnO heterostructures yield GaAs-style quantum phase

ZnO heterostructures yield GaAs-style quantum phase
Heterointerfaces composed of dissimilar materials have been applied to functional devices such as transistors and LEDs. In particular, the best-quality electron system is formed in gallium arsenide heterostructures, where a unique quantum phase was found at low temperature about 30 years ago, the characteristics of which have yet to be clarified.
