Materials & Devices Advanced Research Center, LG Electronics Inc. Seoul, Korea


It was believed that graphene is a wonder material, capable of changing the world like plastics.
However, we have not experienced a graphene industrial revolution yet. Slow advances in its R&D make graphene’s commercial future much less certain. The main reason behind this is cost. Despite superior properties of graphene, the cost to benefit ratio of applying graphene to commercial products is not clear. Also, the obstacle to be overcome is reliable and consistent production of high quality graphene. Here, LG Electronics has made a challenge for mass production of high quality graphene.
In this talk, it is addressed that vertical R2R CVD reactors have been developed for large area and mass production. How the graphene quality has been improved and how we control the quality for mass production is presented. Our business strategy for future graphene applications is shortly mentioned.

Nikolaus Nestle

Principal Scientist

Since the discovery of graphene and its impressive mechanic, thermal and electrical properties, major materials research efforts have been made towards harnessing these properties for the development of polymer composites with unprecedented performance. While this research has shown that some of the bolder expectations for their properties will probably not be achievable for reasons from basic physics, substantial progress has been made in the production of composites with more down-to-earth property improvements.
At the same time, the production of graphene related materials (GRM) has made great progress with respect to available quantities, cost and resource efficiency that pragmatic applications of graphene as just another functional filler for polymer composites has become economically and ecologically viable.

While such properties are not necessarily “flashy”, they nevertheless may greatly help the polymer industry on the way of to a more circular and resource-efficient economy.

Silicon/Graphene Composites For High-Energy Batteries

More Details

03:13pm

joint-presentations.png
TechBlick-favicon_edited.png

Dr. Christoph Stangl

Project Manager

For lithium ion batteries, the use of silicon as active material on the negative electrode is most promising, since silicon offers exceptional high volumetric and gravimetric lithium storage capabilities as well as low charging/discharging potentials. However, this high storage capability is accompanied with high volume changes during lithium insertion/extraction, which causes a rapid decay in dimensional stability of the host material (1). The use of graphene-related materials can help to overcome these crucial problems, as graphene offers a highly conductive and mechanically stable matrix that can suppress or buffer this large volume expansion (2) (3). Consequently, graphene-related materials improve the cycling stability by retaining the native structural integrity as well as the electrode porosity.

Processable Few-Layer Graphenes via Functionalization – The Holy Grail towards Commercialization

More Details

05:40pm

TechBlick-favicon_edited.png

Martin Lohe

CEO

Sixonia Tech has developed a process that creates the ability to functionalize few-layer graphenes deliberately and precisely, directly during their production. Compared to other “graphene” products, our E-Graphenes show a superior combination of tailorable properties within a single material, such as large flake-size in the µm-range, low thickness in the range of typically 1-5 layers and good processability. Unlike in (r)GO, the defined functional groups can provide an improved processability, while still maintaining high electrical conductivity and reasonable sheet size.
Our scalable and eco-friendly electrochemical process opens up new possibilities and prospects for the applications of graphene, in the field of inks, composites, sensors, energy storage and energy conversion. As an example, our E-Graphenes can be functionalized to be dispersible in water without the need for surfactants, while still maintaining an intrinsic conductivity that is at least one order of magnitude higher than that of commonly used reduced graphene oxide (rGO) materials. In contrast to liquid phase exfoliated (LPE) graphene materials, the absence of surfactants can also significantly increase achievable conductivities after deposition and reduce the number of necessary downstream processing steps.

CEO

Textile is the natural interface coating the average human appr. 95% of lifetime and beyond. Ability to read and deliver electrical signals to human skin would enable constant human-machine interaction as a part of future digital world. So far, textile conductivity was realized either by incorporation of conductive threads during manufacturing or via applying a conductive paint onto its surface after manufacturing. We have developed a method for fabrication of electrically active fabric via coating the textile fibres on the nanoscale level. Upon adding 2gr/sqm of graphene, the textile becomes conductive, but preserves its original properties – softness and permeability. Such lightweight, flexible and breathable textiles can enable the future digital textile interfaces for human-machine interaction.

Erdni Batyrev

Material Scientist

Nickel-electroplated steel coated with a CVD graphene, has been found to act as a durable barrier to nickel oxidation in ambient conditions. Roll to roll production may be facilitated through the excellent catalytic performance of the nickel to give complete coverage with limited stacking. The superior protection of the nickel surface by graphene, in combination with improved electrical conductivity, brings an added value to existing applications and opens up potential applications in photovoltaics, energy transfer and energy storage.
An innovative and environmentally friendly process of growing multilayer graphene-based films by extracting atomic carbon from various steel grades will be presented.

Senior Researcher

Graphene shows their promising application in electronic devices, functional thin films and MEMS. The extraordinary performance of graphene devices can only be obtained with the reliable fabrication of high-quality graphene. Our goal is to fabricate the wafer-size single crystalline graphene with atomic smoothness. Our products include 2”-8” monolayer single crystalline graphene grown on Cu film, CuNi alloy film, Ge. We also provide polycrystalline graphene wafer directly grown on silicon oxide/Si without metal layer. Furthermore, we also have the capability to fabricate h-BN thin film with thickness from one layer to multilayer up to 30 nm.
