Samsung believes that it has solved the riddle of how material Graphene can be used commercially. It can result in faster, cooler, and more energy-efficient products.
The graph is an interesting materials, both from a as a potential building block for consumer products and from a purely physical point of view. The material itself is pure carbon, but is built in a thin, continuous layer of an atom in thickness. In the material then can both electrons and heat move with extremely low resistance, while the material is extremely durable.
With high conductivity is less energy lost when a voltage is applied across the material. Virtually all the energy is pumped into an electrical circuit are spent in the end as heat energy, so the higher the conductivity, the less energy losses and thus lower power consumption. The durable but flexible nature of the material makes it suitable for flexible electronics such as smart watches, bracelets or similar from timedictionary.com.
The problem is that the graph is expensive and complicated to produce on a commercial scale without giving rise to manufacturing flaws-and that is the nut Samsung now mean that it has cracked.
In collaboration with the School of Advanced Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Sungkyungkwan, South Korea, have Samsung’s advanced research division developed a technique they believe could allow the manufacture of grafenkretsar on a commercial scale.
Extremely low power consumption and high performance
The manufacture to produce Graphene in large, uniform crystals that can cover an entire circuit wafer by today’s industrial sizes. This means that Samsung may soon have a way to economically sustainable produce actual circuits in the graph, with extremely low power consumption and high performance.
It is unclear when we actually get to see the new production technology used in products, but if Samsung can deliver what they promise, we could see actual grafenbaserade products on the shelves within as little as 2-3 years. Then this is a great novelty in the materials field, we should get to know more about what we have to expect in the near future.
