ImagineNano 2013 (www.imaginenano.com) is to be held from the 23rd to the 26th of April in Bilbao (Spain).
The second year of the event is expected to attract around 1500 participants and will provide some of the most insightful news on the current developments in graphene for those with a taste for investment.
Researchers at The University of Manchester have demonstrated that graphene can be used as a building block to create new 3D crystal structures which are not confined by what nature can produce.
Sandwiching individual graphene sheets between insulating layers in order to produce electrical devices with unique new properties, the method could open up a new dimension of physics research.
Video clip from the BBC Learning Zone. The video features Andre Geim who explains his investigations of the properties of this nanomaterial, which is the strongest material yet discovered and conducts electricity at an incredible speed. The potential for this material is discussed. First broadcast in the Learning Zone on BBC2 in May 2012 as part of the programme Materials: How They Work
Two recent findings in the world of graphene illustrate how graphene continues to be a subject worth following. Subjects in their infancy give rise to all kinds of interesting and unexpected discoveries, and in the case of graphene these discoveries occur with astonishing frequency. However, the two latest findings, one from the very birthplace of graphene science, Manchester University, and one from Tianjin University in China, show in different ways how the miracle material just gets better and better.
