Superconductivity Inside Graphene:
Researchers of MIT institute found one miracle property in Graphene. When two sheets of Graphene are stacked together at the right angle, then the layered structure forms into an unconventional superconductor. The research scholars of MIT also suggested that if three layers of Graphene were stacked like a sandwich and the middle layer rotated by 1.56 degrees with respect to the outer layers then the twisted configuration would create a kind of symmetrical atomic structure that would encourage free electrons to move inside with resistance. That’s how Graphene achieved superconductivity in tri-layer form.
Technological Transformation in Presence of Graphene:
Even after the discovery of Graphene superconductivity is still away from consumers, but revolutionary Graphene-based products will be available in upcoming years. Many of the enthusiasts and consumers are eagerly waiting for unique material-based products like batteries. As of now, lithium ion-based batteries are high in demand. We have already seen that these batteries have their limitation such as heat generation, slow charging, and quick discharging. These drawbacks will be eliminated in Graphene-based batteries. Graphene-based batteries will have at least five times faster charging speed than lithium-ion-based batteries.
Some of the electronics manufacturers like Samsung and Huwei are proactively working on the development of Graphene based products. As of now, very few Graphene-based products are present in the consumer market like display screens and batteries. These products are still in the development phase. Several research teams are still trying to harvest the entire property and capacity of Graphene to change the technological era.
