On the verge of a technological revolution fuelled by the increasingly widespread access to 3D printing, graphene-enhanced 3D printer feed stock (filaments) may take opportunities with 3D printing to the next generation. A company in Long Island NY, Graphene 3D Lab stands at the forefront of this latest 3D printer industry innovation. The company is the R&D leader for supporting the manufacturing industry through the development of proprietary graphene-based, nanocomposite materials (filaments) for various types of 3D printing.
Physicists at Technische Universität München (TUM) are using graphene to produce key elements of an artificial retina.
Graphene is thin, transparent and has a tensile strength greater than that of steel. In addition, it is a better conductor of electricity compared to copper; and, since it comprises a single layer of carbon atoms, it is considered two-dimensional.
