Physicists Build Circuit that Generates Clean, Limitless Power from Graphene
A research team at the University of Arkansas has successfully created a circuit capable of capturing the thermal motion of graphene, and turning it into an electrical current. β€œAn energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors,” said Paul Thibado, lead researcher in the discovery. The recently published findings prove a theory, developed three years ago, that freestanding graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – ripples and buckles in a way that shows promise for energy harvesting. The theory of harvesting energy from graphene...
