New Study Finds Folding Graphene Significantly Enhances Mechanical Performance
Distinguished Professor Rodney S. Ruoff’s team succeeded in folding an A5-sized, 400nm polycarbonate film in half 12 times.
Their work has been published in the prestigious journal, Advances Materials.
A piece of paper folded over many times able to carry more weight than a flat sheet of paper of the same length. Similarly, folding can also enhance the mechanical properties of graphene.
An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has discovered that folding is an efficient strategy to incorporate large-area monolayer graphene films on polymer composites and that doing so improves mechanical reinforcement.
This breakthrough has been led by Distinguished Professor Rodney S. Ruoff and his research group from the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at UNIST. Professor Nicola Pugno from University of Trento in Italy,…
