It was reported that scientists at NUS and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz have attested that the thermal conductivity of graphene diverges with the size of the samples. This discovery challenges the fundamental laws of heat conduction for extended materials. Their research and results have now been presented in the scientific journal Nature Communications. A similar report was carried in: R & D magazine.
The team of Asst/Prof Andrivo Rusydi from the National University of Singapore has solved a long standing mystery in the physics of condensed matter. Using Singapore Synchrotron Light Source of National University of Singapore and DESY's bright research light sources, they have opened a new door to better solar cells, novel superconductors and smaller hard-drives.
