How 3D printing, lasers and sugar add up to industrial scale graphene production

3D-printed graphene foam, as seen through a scanning electron microscope (left) and transmission electron microscope (right) The carbon-based wonder material graphene is starting to make the leap from two dimensions to three. Back in February, researchers from Rice University created 3D graphene foam supported by carbon nanotubes, but it was difficult to make. Now, the team has developed a way to 3D print the material. Graphene is poised to improve electronics , batteries , medicine , water filters , and basically anything that can benefit from being lighter, stronger or a better conductor of heat and electricity. But before […]
