Layering substances like graphene in new ways could help us to build quantum computers or transmit electricity over long distances.
Hailie Selassie thought his country's gold could rival the biggest deposits in the world. He may be proven right.
By figuring out fission, physicists were able to split uranium atoms and release massive amounts of energy. This Manhattan Project work paved the way both for atomic bombs and nuclear power reactors.
We need to think about the raw materials of batteries -- where they come from and their environmental cost.
Australia needs to move beyond mining graphite and invest in processes that convert it into synthetic diamonds and use it to create carbon fibres.
By mimicking the structure of cork, graphene can be turned into a strong yet elastic material. Graphene is formed when graphite…
A combination of water and graphite could create energy storage systems which recharge in a matter of seconds and have an…
