The Role of Graphene in Achieving e-Mobility in Aerospace
Advanced two-dimensional (2D) materials discovered in the last two decades are now
being produced at scale and are contributing to a wide range of performance enhancements
in engineering applications. The most well-known of these novel materials is graphene,
a nearly transparent nanomaterial comprising a single layer of bonded carbon atoms.
In relative terms, it has the highest level of heat and electrical conductivity, protects
against ultraviolet rays, and is strongest material ever measured. These properties have
made graphene an attractive potential material for a variety of applications, particularly
for transportation related uses, and especially for aerospace engineering.
The Role of Graphene in Achieving e-Mobility in Aerospace Applications reviews the current
state of graphene-related aerospace applications and identifies the technological challenges
facing engineers that look to benefit from graphene’s attractive properties.
