- Study shows graphene moves in a back and forth manner similar to how electrons behave in a circuit
- Physicists invent a circuit that can convert energy from graphene into an electrical current
- The study result has became significant in today’s search for a clean energy source
The world may soon have a clean and limitless, energy source powered by a circuit that harvests electricity from the atomic motion of graphene. The technology comes in the form of small chips that have the potential of replacing disposable energy sources and saving people from the lifetime purchase of small batteries.
A team of physicists from the University of Arkansas has presented their invention of a circuit that can capture the thermal motion of graphene and convert it into an electrical current. The study, published in the journal Physical Review E, is built upon a finding three years ago that first
