Driven by demand from markets where advanced materials are required, graphene promises to outstrip all current nanomaterials, especially in electronics and energy storage applications. Other markets graphene is impacting include aerospace, automotive, coatings and paints, communications, sensors, solar, oil, and lubricants. The exceptional electron and thermal transport, mechanical properties, chemical stability of graphene and combinations thereof make it a potentially disruptive technology for electronics and energy applications.



Application areas at different stages of commercial development include:



Energy

  • Lithium-Ion Batteries
  • Supercapacitors
  • Fuel Cells
  • Photovoltaics

Electronics

  • Transparent Conductors
  • Optical Switches
  • Transistors and Integrated Circuit
  • Memory Devices
  • Spintronics

Applications are coming onto the market for polymer composites and EMI shielding coatings. Graphene-based conducting inks are also finding their way into smart cards and radio-frequency identification tags. China is expecting to bring graphene products to the market in 2014 in consumer electronics. Companies such as IBM and Samsung are pursuing applications for graphene in electronics and optics. Most major Li-ion battery manufacturers and electronics companies, especially in Asia, have significant research initiatives in graphene.

Many of the current and potential applications of carbon nanotubes may be taken by graphene, as it displays enhanced properties but with greater ease of production and handling. In this regard, carbon nanotubes may be viewed as a stalking horse for commercial applications of graphene. In the next 2-3 years there is likely to be graphene enabled-applications in ultra thin flexible Li ion batteries, large supercapacitors, water membranes, biosensors, optical sensors, solar cells and conductive composites.

The projected killer app for graphene has been identified as transparent conductive films for displays, but that is not proven yet. Enhancement of conductive inks and composites are viewed as shorter-term opportunities.In electronics, competition from silicon in semiconductors. Other competing technologies include sliver nanowires and carbon nanotubes as well as other 2D materials such as boron nitride, molybdenum disulfide, tungsten tungsten disulfide and germanane.

The current overall graphene market is estimated to be between US$13-$15 million. However this will grow significantly in the next 10 years and is likely to be larger than projected figures from a number of market consultancies. For example, XG Sciences have over 600 customers in the automotive, electronics, battery and aerospace industries, and the company generated $4 million in revenue in 2012. Most of the major graphene producers have relationships with electronics and battery OEMs.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing ...
Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
