  • Conductive Behaviour Of Graphene/Carbon Nanotube Hybrid Technique

    Part One: Conductive behaviour of graphene/carbon nanotube and graphene oxide/ carbon nanotube hybrid materials Experimental Introduction Although many CNTs and graphene based electrodes have been developed with outstanding properties, drawbacks are still noticeable using some methods. For instance, EPD method commonly produces unsatisfied CNTs film strength and on the other hand, CVD technique is costly. Moreover, graphene based electrodes needs lots of labour works which is time consuming…

  • Galapacanic Evolution

    When scientists entered the Galapagos Rift they found a variation in temperature that changed drastically. The data collected by researchers revealed temperatures fluctuating between 320F to 7500F, within a relatively short distance (NOAA). Not only high temperatures were registered, but a complete ecosystem was surrounded by a unique marine life capable of surviving the extreme conditions. Since then, not just the ocean floor has been part of the scientist 's investigation; but the marine…
