Graphene-ceramic metamaterial shows promise in sensors and heat shields

Graphene-ceramic metamaterial exhibits unique properties for multiple applications A new lightweight, flame-resistant and super-elastic metamaterial combines high strength with electrical conductivity and thermal insulation for applications ranging from heat shields to sensors. Developed at Purdue University, the composite combines nanolayers of aluminium oxide with graphene, both of which are brittle. This attribute is countered by … Continue reading Graphene-ceramic metamaterial shows promise in sensors and heat shields
