The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center welcomes University of Texas at Austin Professor Rod Ruoff on "Graphene-based Materials"

Abstract:
Graphene-based materials hold promise due to their exceptional electronic and thermal transport, mechanical properties, high specific surface area, and that they can act as an atom thick layer, barrier, or membrane. Our early top-down micromechanical exfoliation approaches [1,2] conceived of in 1998 yielded multilayer graphene. Two main research areas of our group are: (i) CVD growth of large area graphene on metal substrates and studies of such material, and (ii) the generation, study, and use of colloids consisting of graphene-based platelets dispersed in liquids. An update of our work on CVD growth of graphene on metal substrates ‘graphene’ colloidal suspensions will be given.
