Electrical characterization of graphene-based composites

Blending carbonaceous materials with thermoplastic materials can lead to a significant improvement of the resulting electrical, mechanical, thermal, and gas barrier properties compared with the unfilled polymer. Graphene, the name given to a material consisting of two-dimension layers of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has extraordinary properties which make possible to produce a new class of polymer nanocomposites with significantly improved properties.

Development and characterization of polyester/graphene coatings

Environmental aging is responsible for many industrial failures. Using a protective coating is one of the most common and also efficient methods to protect material surfaces against environmental attack, and consequently extend their life. For modern coatings used for industrial applications, besides high chemical stability and good adhesion, new functionalities such electrical conductivity or anti-static properties are desired. For example, for development of transportation and electronic technologies, a low cost conductive coating with good physical properties is required.

Characterization of graphene-based composites

Blending carbon fillers with thermoplastic materials can lead to a significant improvement of the resulting electrical, mechanical, thermal, and gas barrier properties compared with the unfilled polymer. Graphene, the name given to a material consisting of two-dimension layers of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has extraordinary properties which make possible to produce a new class of polymer nanocomposites with significantly improved properties.

Design of Radio Frequency Identification tags based upon Graphene interconnections

Long checkout lines at the grocery stores and wholesales are one of the biggest complaints about the shopping experience. Soon these lines could disappear when te ubiquitous universal product code barcode is replaced by smart labels, also called radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. RFID tags are intelligent barcodes that can talk to a networked system to track every product that you put in your shopping cart. In this project, Graphene, the wonder material of the century, will be integrated into RFID devices to increase its reliability and reduce its product cost.
