Carbon news, October 2020

Researchers have developed an electrochemically assisted membrane whose permeability to gases such as carbon dioxide can be switched on and off at will.

Improved heat management of electronic devices

Dissipating heat in electronic devices with graphite films

For the first time, researchers have produced superconductivity at room temperature by compressing a hydrogen-rich material at extremely high pressures.

Twisted stacks of bilayer graphene can exhibit highly correlated electron properties, which likely relates to the emergence of exotic magnetic states.

Researchers have discovered a variety of exotic electronic states, including a rare form of magnetism, in a twisted three-layer graphene structure.

Applying strain to tiny needles of diamond can transform their electronic properties from insulating, through semiconducting, to highly conductive.

By stitching together short segments of graphene nanoribbons, researchers have created a conducting metal wire made entirely of carbon.
