Laser-induced graphene gets tough, with help

Rice University scientists have combined laser-induced graphene with a variety of materials to make robust composites for a variety of applications. Credit: Tour Group/Rice University Laser-induced graphene (LIG), a flaky foam of the atom-thick carbon, has many interesting properties on its own but gains new powers as part of a composite. The labs of Rice…

Sustainable electronics manufacturing breakthrough

SFU Mechatronic Systems Engineering professor Woo Soo Kim is collaborating with Swiss researchers to develop an eco-friendly 3D printable solution for producing wireless Internet-of-Things sensors. The research team is using a wood-derived cellulose material to replace the plastics and polymeric materials currently used in electronics.
