Submission + - Piezolelectric Graphene Could Have Wide-Reaching Applications (gizmag.com) 1

Zothecula writes: Scientists have succeeded in endowing graphene with yet another useful property. Already, it is the thinnest, strongest and stiffest material ever measured, while also proving to be an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. These qualities have allowed it to find use in everything from transistors to supercapacitors to anti-corrosion coatings. Now, two materials engineers from Stanford University have used computer models to show how it could also be turned into a piezoelectric material – this means that it could generate electricity when mechanically stressed, or change shape when subjected to an electric current.

  • Make a nanobot out of the stuff and Brownian motion will give it energy. Then it can actuate by flexing its structure.

Your good nature will bring unbounded happiness.
