The highly efficient graphene light bulb might make its commercial debut by this year

Last month, we had enumerated eight potential commercial applications of the one-atom thick carbon allotrope - graphene. Well, this time around, University of Manchester researchers have collaborated with Graphene Lighting PLC to showcase an actual application of graphene - the world's very first graphene light bulb. Envisioned to have greater efficiency than regular LED bulbs,…


Graphene oxide can potentially prevent the proliferation of cancer stem cells

We had harped about graphene's potentiality in the field of flexible electronics. But this time around, scientists have found another conceivable use of graphene which is arguably more crucial - since it relates intrinsically to human health. The collaborative effort of researchers from University of Manchester and the University of Calabria have initiated a discovery…
