MIT scientists create super strong, lightweight 3D graphene
Boston (UPI) Jan 6, 2017
Material scientists at MIT have developed a super strong but lightweight material by fusing graphene flakes into a porous, 3D form. In its 2D form, graphene is one of the strongest materials yet tested, but researchers have struggled to maintain graphene's physical qualities in 3D form. A team of researchers at MIT found a way around the problem. When compressed in the lab using heat and pressure, graphene flakes fuse into a unique geometrical configuration similar to the structural form ... read more
