Samsung claims that graphene can be used on larger surfaces




The research department of Samsung claims it has overcome to start. Mass production of components of graphene is a major obstacle The strong and thin material can thus make his entrance include wearables from the South Korean manufacturer.

Scientists from a South Korean university and R & D department of Samsung make their invention publicized in the publication of scientific time writes Science this week. For the production of larger quantities of graphene, the scientists used germanium as a buffer layer.

The invention makes it possible to produce, without that the unique properties of the layer of a single atom may be lost. Graphene on larger surfaces In a single layer graphene is a strong and flexible material that additionally thermally and electrically conductive. That makes it interesting for applications in electronics.

A scientist from a competing research calls into the business newspaper The Wall Street Journal, the first demonstration of the application of graphene on a larger area. Samsung did not comment on when or if it will use graphene in electronics but the business newspaper speculates that graphene by its properties is well suited for wearables.
