The New Method Can Wake Upthe Graphene Superconductivity
An international team recently published a new report to "awaken" the superconductivity of graphene, and if the technology is mature, it will greatly expand the scope of application of this material, an international team recently published in the British academic journal Nature Newsletter. The
Graphene is a two-dimensional material that is separated from a graphite material and consists of only one layer of carbon atoms. It has a thin, tough, conductive, thermal conductivity and other properties, is the industry has high hopes for a new generation of materials. Scientists have always believed that this material can have superconductivity, but had not found a way to confirm.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge, England and other institutions of the graphene and a "praseodymium cerium copper oxide" superconducting material with the experiment, successfully "wake up" the graphene "sleeping" superconductivity. Experiments show that the enamel exhibited superconductivity is not from the outside, "praseodymium cerium oxide" role is only as an auxiliary material to stimulate the inherent superconductivity of graphene.
Superconductivity refers to the phenomenon that some of the material disappears completely under certain conditions, and the current flows in the material without loss, without energy loss and heat. Superconductivity phenomenon in the electronics industry has a wide range of prospects, but the relevant technology from the large-scale practical application there are many problems to overcome.
Graphene as a superconductor will open a lot of imagination. According to the researchers, "polished" after the graphene can be used to manufacture supercomputers and so on.
