Griffith University researchers have discovered significant new potentials for light harvesting through narrowing the bandgap of titania and graphene quantum dots. The researchers for the first time have found a quantum-confined bandgap narrowing mechanism where UV absorption of the grapheme quantum dots and TiO2 nanoparticles can easily be extended into the visible light range. Such […]

The wonder material stronger than Superman

Centre for Planetary Health and Food Security
It’s a material so strong even the Man of Steel or a bullet would have trouble breaking through it – and its versatility and exciting potential are only now just being uncovered. Graphene, the technology of the future, will be showcased at a major international conference being hosted by Griffith University next week. The 5th […]
