Rice team develops an acoustic processing method to analyze LIG synthesis in real time

Researchers at Rice University have found that sound can be used to analyze the properties of laser-induced graphene (LIG) in real time.

The researchers, two of which are brothers, say that they heard something unusual while making graphene. Ultimately, they determined the sound itself could give them valuable data about the product. The brothers, John Li, a Rice alumnus now studying at Stanford University, and Victor Li, then a high school student in New York and now a freshman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are co-lead authors of a paper that describes the real-time analysis of laser-induced graphene (LIG) production through sound.

Lyten receives National Security Innovation Capital contract to accelerate graphene battery technology

Earlier this month, graphene-enhanced batteries developer Lyten was commissioned by the U.S DIU to demonstrate battery technology for space applications. Now, Lyten has announced that it has received a contract from the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD) National Security Innovation Capital (NSIC) program to aid in expanding the capacity of its domestic battery prototype manufacturing and production capabilities.

The funding from NSIC will help reduce the time to market for Lyten's LytCell™ lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries by increasing the number of cells that can be produced per year at its battery cell pilot production line, currently being built at its headquarters in San Jose, California.

First Graphene secures Innovate UK funding for supercapacitor research

Last month, First Graphene (FGR) announced a milestone in its program to develop high performing supercapacitor materials. Now, the Company announced it has been awarded funding from Innovate UK EDGE to progress development work on its supercapacitor graphene hybrid materials with a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) based in the United Kingdom.

The Innovate EDGE fund supports high-growth small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to scale up and innovate, working alongside the UK’s “RTO and Catapult Network”. The Company will engage with world-leading experts at the Energy Innovation Centre based at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) – part of the Catapult Network.

Advanced Material Development secures InnovateUK grant for work on nanomaterials-based gas sensors

Advanced Material Development recently announced a new InnovateUK “Analysis 4 Innovators” grant to work on validating its next generation novel nanomaterial-based gas sensors. AMD is working with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) on the development and testing of devices using advanced testing equipment, and measurement and analysis experience.

The next generation of air quality monitors will rely on low power sensing elements which can be connected remotely to support more detailed and localized emissions monitoring. This three-month project seeks to validate novel nanomaterial-based sensors which AMD has recently developed utilizing its functionalized nanomaterials. For instance, AMD's Photonic Crystal work incorporates various nanomaterials into the polymeric structure, of which graphene is the main constituent.

Emberion raises €6 million to further its infrared imaging business

Emberion recently raised €6 million in funding to further develop their infrared imaging business. Currently, Emberion is one of the leaders in the development of these technologies, enabled by graphene and other layered materials.

Graphene Flagship partner Emberion develops high-performance SWIR sensors for imaging technologies. These devices detect light in both the visible and short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelengths, enabling new applications in machine vision – used in surveillance, autonomous driving, food processing, waste sorting, and more. Emberion also leads Graphene Flagship Spearhead Project GBIRCAM, to design cheaper and more efficient broadband infrared devices.

Applied Graphene Materials' graphene-enhanced anti-corrosion primer used by England’s Environment Agency for flood defense applications

Applied Graphene Materials has announced that England’s Environment Agency (EA) has successfully completed its first application of AGM’s harsh environment anti-corrosion product to one of its flood defense assets on the North East coast of England. The coastal flood defense gates were coated with AGM’s new graphene-enhanced Genable CX-based anti-corrosion primer.

The AGM’s coating system used in this project is a further iteration of AGM’s product offerings for barrier performance and anti-corrosion application. It represents the culmination of 18 months of in-depth testing and evaluation of anti-corrosion performance for both salt-spray and immersion in harsh test regimes.
