Physicists at the University of California have taken a major step towards developing a "spin computer" by successfully tunneling "spin injection" into graphene.
Two Russian scientists have won the Nobel Prize for Physics for their work developing graphene.
Cellphones can recharge in a matter of minutes with a new battery technology developed by the Department of Energy and Vorbeck Materials.
Scientists at the University of South Florida (USF) have created an anomaly that could allow graphene to eventually replace silicon as the primary material in electronic devices.
It's not much use developing clever new materials in the lab unless they can be mass-produced. And while graphene has been exciting scientists and chip developers for a while, it's always been tricky to make.
IBM has developed the world's fastest graphene transistor, which outperforms traditional silicon.
