The first functional graphene-based flexible display has been produced

Graphene has been called a “magical” material that may hold the key to better electronic gadgets, both when it comes to device durability but also electrical abilities, as various research teams are figuring new ways to put the astonishing material to good use. Reports have so far detailed longer-lasting batteries based on graphene, significantly improved wireless data speeds using antennas made of the material, while some people are interested in using it for better sound, but it looks like graphene can also be used to build flexible displays.

Apple Vs. Samsung Graphene

Apple and Samsung’s next major fight won’t be over what you think

Apple and Samsung’s next major fight won’t be over what you think

Earlier this week, we shared a video that explained the incredible potential of graphene, a transparent material that is just a single atom thick. According to the video, graphene is “stronger than diamond, more conductive than copper, more flexible than rubber and it’s so thin you can barely see it with the naked eye.” We also noted that Samsung developed a manufacturing process last month for graphene that could speed up its use in actual commercial products. Graphene could be key to the future of flexible displays, wearable devices, and even batteries. Bloomberg says graphene could lead to phones that stay “charged for a week and recharges in 15 minutes.”

This is the incredible material that could make our smartphones paper thin

We’ve been hearing about the potential of graphene in the electronics industry for years. Just last month, Samsung announced that it had discovered a new production method that could bring graphene to commercial products even sooner. Taking advantage of the material’s flexibility, Samsung believes that flexible displays will be much more than a gimmick in the coming years. More →

Graphene Audio Speaker

Why graphene speakers could become the audio industry’s new gold standard

Why graphene speakers could become the audio industry’s new gold standard

We’ve heard a lot about graphene being a “wonder material” that could be used for smartphone casings and antennas, but now it seems that some engineers have found a way to incorporate it into audio speakers and headphones as well. Technology Review reports that University of California Berkeley researchers Qin Zhou and Alex Zettl have found that graphene is the perfect material for constructing speaker diaphragms, which typically work best when made from a thin material that reduces the need to conduct expensive and energy-consuming “damping engineering.” More →

How graphene antennas could pave the way for terabit wireless data speeds

How graphene antennas could pave the way for terabit wireless data speeds

While gigabit Wi-Fi seems to be all the rage these days, some researchers at Georgia Tech are working on new technology that makes even the fastest wireless networks look like dial-up in comparison. Technology Review reports that Georgia Tech’s broadband wireless networking laboratory has been experimenting with making antennas out of graphene,  a two-dimensional “super-material” that measures just one atom thick and has been described by Nokia (NOK) as the “strongest material ever tested, having a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel.” But while a lot of attention has been paid to graphene’s potential for manufacturing incredibly thin and light gadget casings, the researchers at Georgia Tech are using it to create an antenna capable of transmitting data at a rate of a terabit per second.
