  • Graphene Composites antivirus Covid 19 killing treatment G-Force sports gear

    Gear to protect athletes from coronavirus

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Graphene Composites and G-Form are teaming up to develop and distribute athletic protective equipment that not only guards the wearer against blunt trauma but also from viruses such as COVID-19. G-Form already rides on the cutting-edge of technology when it comes to manufacturing comfortable athletic protective gear. The company's SmartFlex pads are constructed from materials that can change molecular structure on contact – soft when lightly touched, becoming harder with s... Full story

  • Graphene spintronics could break Moore's Law of computer technology price

    Graphene opens door to 'spintronic' tech

    A.J. Roan, For Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Recently, advances in theoretical and experimental phenomena in studies surrounding spin transport electronics have emerged providing evidence that graphene and 2D materials could move electronics beyond Moore's Law. Intel co-founder Gordon Moore postulated that the number of transistors, those tiny on and off switches that represent the standard computer binary system, on an integrated circuit would double every two years and the costs to acquire computing power would be cut...

  • Northrop Grumman space freighter Soyuz MS-12 crew ship graphene em shields

    Out of this world 3D printed graphene

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Incredibly strong, lightweight, and conductive, it was only a matter of time the out-of-this-world properties of graphene were considered for use by the aerospace industry. Now, University of British Columbia Professor Mohammad Arjmand and his team are embarking on a research project to develop 3D printed graphene-polymer nanocomposites to shield the electronics aboard satellites from the electromagnetic radiation in space. Earth's magnetic shield deflects most of the charged...

  • Zen Albany Graphene for Covid 19 coronavirus testing detection viral RNA

    Zen provides graphene for COVID-19 test

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Graphene's ability to kill viruses has captured headlines as companies look to add it to face masks, sporting equipment, paints and numerous other products aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19. Now, it seems this 2D carbon material may also have a role to play in advanced detection of the disease. University of Ottawa Professor Maxim Berezovski, head of the Berezovski Research Group, is developing a dual detection testing method that can be performed in two hours and will...

  • STS3D virtual reality VR for underground mine blasting training Anglo American

    VR offers a virtual blast for new miners

    A.J. Roan, For Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    Global mining company Anglo American is harnessing the virtual reality and motion capture expertise of STS3D and Vicon Motion Systems to create a state-of-the-art virtual environment to safely train mining initiates on the accurate use of explosives for underground development. Anglo first set out to solve a truly difficult question: how can one appropriately and safely train recruits to blow things up thousands of feet beneath the ground? At Anglo Platinum operations in...
