Cambridge, UK based graphene startup, Paragraf, has closed a £12.8 million (~$16M) Series A round of funding led by early stage VC Parkwalk. Also investing this round: IQ Capital Partners, Amadeus
The success of open-source methods that focus on decentralization and allows for open collaboration on projects brings to light the potential for its implementation in other areas.
Paragraf, a Cambridge University graphene spin-out, has closed a £2.9M (~$3.9M) seed round. The funding is led by the university’s commercialization arm, Cambridge Enterprise, with Parkwalk Adv
Researchers at the have successfully etched edible circuits onto the surface of food, paving the way for RFID tagged edibles that can help us track food from farm to tummy. The project, which uses som
Erato, one of the first companies to make and sell fully wireless earbuds, has a new product available called the Verse that’s more affordable than its flagship Apollo 7 buds, but with great sou
Running shoes and graphene were made for each other. One is always in search of the latest gimmick and the other has produced some of the most stunning in recent memory. The University of Manchester,
Researchers at the University of Manchester have come up with a method for controlling the permeation of graphene oxide membranes -- enabling the nanomaterial to act as a sieve to desalinate seawater.
Not all important scientific research is cool looking, or has a cool name. But now and then you get something with both. These self-assembling carbon nanotubes are created with a process called Teslap
Graphene, the super thin carbon material that's been exciting scientists in the decade+ since single-atom thick graphene crystallites were successfully extracted from the bulk material, continues to g
Welcome to another episode of "Cool Science Stuff That Probably Will Have Some Effect On Our Lives Later But We Probably Won't Realize It." In this week's installment we present graphene photosensors.
A graphene research initiative has been selected by the European Commission as one of two winners of its Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) research excellence award competition -- to develop the
Material scientists and nanotechnologists get very excited about the potential of graphene -- a one-atom-thick sheet of bonded carbon atoms that's exceptionally strong and flexible -- but they are no

Made from graphene, scientists in the UK have created the world’s smallest transistor. Size? Oh, say, about the size of an atom. The transistor, which could totally change the way electronics ar
