Breif

Graphene is a two-dimensional material consisting of carbon atoms with honeycomb structure. Graphene shows excellent electrical, thermal conductivity, high strength and low friction coefficient. Therefore, Graphene have been actively studied for application to various field by utilizing those properties. In our laboratory, fabrication process and their properties of Graphene/Metal nanocomposites were analyzed to improve mechanical properties and wear properties for application to bearing materials. To solve problems which is agglomeration of Graphene in metal matrix, "molecular level mixing process" have been developed. By this process, Graphenes were homogeneously dispersed in metal matrix, resulting in enhanced mechanical properties and high wear resistance. It is considered as source technology which can expand Graphene as structural materials to functional materials such as display and energy materals etc.
