Growing Graphene on Semiconductors

Nunzio Motta, Francesca Iacopi, Camilla Coletti
September 05, 2017

Graphene, the wonder material of the 21st century, is expected to play an important role in future nanoelectronic applications, but the only way to achieve this goal is to grow graphene directly on a semiconductor, integrating it in the chain for the production of electronic circuits and devices....

Intelligent Polymers for Nanomedicine and Biotechnologies

Magdalena Aflori
September 05, 2017

Almost all synthetic materials over time induce some level of inflammation and fibrosis. Therefore, even though the successes of biomaterials science in producing acceptable solutions to the problem of biocompatibility have been remarkable, there remains enormous opportunity for improvement. The...

Handbook of Granular Materials
