Graphene is accelerating the development of IoT technologies
Nano-technology layering process to enhance electrical engineering and mobile enrgy source efficiencies
SSEC Energy has identified graphene as a next-generation material that possess the potential to enhance the performance of numerous applications across a wide range of industries.
At the atomic level, graphene is a single, thin layer of pure carbon, constructed in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice structure of tightly packed carbon atoms. It is the thinnest compound know to man and when stacked in multiple layers, a more common material is formed - graphite.
A number of compelling attributes of graphene have given way to a recent surge of research and innovation as material developers seek to integrate graphene as a driver of nex-gen Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.
- Thinnest compound know
- Lightest material know
- Strongest compound in discovery
- Best conductor of electricity know
- The most efficient conductor of heat at room temperature
Since the mechanical obtainment of graphene, the development of science has exploded to uncover the potential for a dramatic acceleration of innovation within the biotech and electronics sphere.
Challenges to overcome
SSEC Energy's graphene R&D programs are focused on lower the costs of producing high quality grade graphene sheets through the separation of graphene from the metallic board on which it is grown.
Whilst this initial process remains a costly experience, techniques have been applied to ensure that metallic boards are infinitely reusable. In this instance, economies of scale will facilitate the goal of cost saving efficiencies, in turn producing a commercially viable product.
SSEC Energy's graphene capabilities
Through its collaboration initiative, SSEC Energy has developed a way to strip high quality grade graphene down a single state so it can be combined in layers with metals and arbitrary surfaces used in the production of electronics.
In this state, impurities during the mechanical obtainment stripping process are removed enhancing the manipulation of the crystallographic orientation graphene layering structure. This innovative technique has assisted with the rapid development of application production as processes become more simplified and cost-effective.
Graphene based applications
The characteristics of graphene offer much scope for the accelerated development of numerous applications, none more so that the potential for super-capacitors to integrate into the IoT application phase.
The potential to advance electrical engineering by improving the way power source efficiencies drive devices and applications can be nurtured through the use of graphene and other layering compounds.
The possibilities of what can be achieved through this process are proving to endless; explosive increases in computer processing speeds, miniaturized yet powerful devices hosts, smart home applications, smart transportation, electronic vehicles, space exploration and healthcare products.
