Measuring the Impact of ARO Research Investments on the Advancement of Associated Technical Research Fields

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) was asked to determine the effects of early investments—specifically, a multi-university research initiative (MURI)—in “beyond graphene,” two-dimensional (2-D), “freestanding” materials and other emerging technologies by the U.S. Army…

Use of Graphene for Stealth in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

  The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) was asked to conduct an analysis of the use of graphene for stealth in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). DSIAC staff searched a variety of databases, including open-source…


New Hybrid Energy Method Could Fuel the Future of Rockets, Spacecraft for Exploration

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Graphene, a new material with applications in biomedical technology, electronics, composites, energy, and sensors, may soon help send rockets to space. A new propellant formulation method to use graphene foams – material used in electronics, optics, and energy devices – to power spacecraft is being developed in Purdue University’s Maurice J.

Scalable Manufacturing Process Spools Out Strips of Graphene

MIT engineers have developed a continuous manufacturing process that produces long strips of high-quality graphene. The custom-built, roll-to-roll CVD system makes graphene on copper foil at 1,000 °C. The results, published in the American Chemical Society (ACS), are the first demonstration of an industrial, scalable method for manufacturing high-quality graphene that is tailored for use

Sculpting With Graphene Foam

Rice University scientists have developed a simple way to produce conductive, three-dimensional (3D) objects made of graphene foam. The squishy solids look and feel something like a child’s toy but offer new possibilities for energy storage and flexible electronic sensor applications. The technique detailed in advanced materials is an extension of groundbreaking work by the
