Low cost and easy delamination process to isolate high quality graphene films

Researchers from the CSIC and the laboratory CIBER- BBN have developed a simple procedure to isolate highly crystalline graphene. The method enables the graphene to be transferred from the silicon carbide substrate, where it has been formed, to any other one, such as a dielectric for electronic device applications.

Organic molecular metal that change colour and electrical properties with an electric field

Scientists at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) have demonstrated the capacity of an organic material to quickly and reversibly change its colour and electrical properties upon the application of an electric field. The reported results constitute a proof-of-concept that opens up new possibilities for the design and fabrication of organic electrochromic and rectifying devices for electronics.
