Samsung researchers claim graphene breakthrough
The Telegraph ^ | 4/4/2014 | Sophie Curtis

Posted on 04/05/2014 6:51:29 PM PDT by Vince Ferrer

Samsung researchers have developed a new method of synthesising graphene, which they claim could accelerate the commercialisation of the so-called 'miracle material', for use in electronic devices.

Graphene is one of the thinnest, lightest, strongest and most conductive materials know to man, consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. Its versatility means that it can potentially support a wide variety of applications in electronics, including flexible displays, wearables and other next-generation electronic devices.

Or so they hope.

But whether it is graphene speedie chips or something else...the future is very exciting.

They can place an electrode in your brain which will anticipate your every thought.

Is that what you want?

But whether you want it or not...it is still coming.

The brave new world was never this brave...or scary.

All I want is a High Resolution monitor for my MAC..the same resolution thats on all the newer ipads and Mac Laptops..and Id like it within the next ten years or so.

There should be 4k monitors for computers in the next year or 2 that’ll be fairly affordable.

Graphene is some pretty promising stuff. Could even be used for condoms.

dos such monitors boast the smaller “dot pitch” found on the new mac laptops?

It may not have the fancy name that Apple uses, but it would be an 8 megapixel display vs 2 megapixel for the standard 1080p most use now.

Im most interested in the size of the pixels.

at the present 72 dpi is the standard whereas the Macbook and the new ipads have 326 ppi

the overla screen dimensions mean less to me that the detail per inch.

I’ve found that one which says 140ppi, but it’s a huge monitor. I’d imagine if you scale that down to 22” or so it’ll be much higher dpi. I’m not sure any that small are out quite yet to really know, but they should be coming soon.

The Mac Laptop monitor has 326 ppi and is said to be superb for processing and editing photograph

the rumors are that apple wont make stand alone monitors with that much resolution due to cost constraints but I think theyre waiting for market demand quite franklu

From my favorite photography web site ,,and forum

The big news, of course, is the so-called Retina display. Let’s be clear that “Retina” is simply an Apple marketing term not a standard of any sort. It means a screen (be it on an IPhone, an iPad, or now a Macbook Pro, in which the resolution is so high that the individual dots (screen pixels) are so fine that they are invisible to the human eye. If you are working with a normal screen at the moment, look closely at these letters. If you’ve good eyesight you can just see that each letter is made up of separate elements. They’re very fine, but they can be seen. On the Retina display they’re not just invisible, but the letters on the screen look as if they were printed, they are that sharp.

The screen has a resolution of 2880X1800 pixels. A typical 15” laptop screen is 1440X900. This high pixel count leads to a screen resolution of 220 PPI. This is close to a high quality photo printer’s resolution.

Hope it can be scaled....that always is the problem. Hopeful news at least

That means that within 4 years or so, Apple will release one at 3x the price of the ‘fairly affordable’ ones and call it a ‘revolutionary game changer’.

Think if they can create superconducting power cables out of this. That would be revolutionary.

The breakthrough in this article is one of scaling, they can create uniform graphene sheets the size of a computer chip wafer. Other graphene applications often don't need regular graphene flakes, but chips do. They can now create chip sized flakes, exactly the size they need.

when one speaks of scaling, we do not mean in the laboratory. Scaling requires one to be able to repeatedly do the thing (yes at larger size) in a cost effective manner. Many times one can accomplish part of the goal (i.e. doing something repeatedly with proper quality) but not in a cost effective manner. that is why I said it is hopeful. We will see what additional work produces

I agree. I don't want a small phone. Ditched my smart phone and use a 7 inch tablet now.

Have you tried voice input. On my device it keeps up word for word, just missing one every now and then. It even picked up conversation between two of us, as if it was transcribing our conversation. Amazing.

Thanks Vince Ferrer. I'm always impressed with the number of graphene topics.
