Breakthrough graphene biomaterial regenerates heart and nerve tissue

Money Quote: “We are very excited by the potential of this material for cardiac applications, but the capacity of the material to deliver physiological electrical stimuli while limiting infection suggests it might have potential in a number of other indications, such as repairing damaged peripheral nerves or perhaps even spinal cord… The technology also has potential applications where external devices such as biosensors and devices might interface with the body.”

Graphene Gets ISO Standardization

Hurdles

Money Quote: “It is important to standardize the terminology for graphene, graphene-derived and related 2D materials at the international level, as the number of publications, patents and organizations is increasing rapidly. Thus, these materials need an associated vocabulary as they become commercialized and sold throughout the world.”

Stretching the boundaries of neural implants

Money Quote: ” After the entire fabrication process, what’s left is the transparent fiber with electrically conductive, stretchy nanowire coatings. “It’s really just a piece of rubber, but conductive,” Anikeeva says. The fiber can stretch by at least 20 to 30 percent without affecting its properties, she says.

How a Microscopic Supercapacitor Will Supercharge Mobile Electronics

Best Quote – “The hybrid device is only one-fifth the thickness of a sheet of paper; its footprint can vary from a few square micrometers up to the centimeter scale. The centimeter-scale devices would have capacitances in the range of 400 to 1,000 millifarads—easily enough to power an LED flashlight for an hour.”
