The RISE proposal Graphene 3D will set up an intercontinental and inter-sectoral network of organizations, working on a joint research program in the field of graphene-based polymer nanocomposite materials for additive manufacturing application. The project will enable staff exchanges and sharing of knowledge, this helping to turn creative ideas into innovative graphene-based products.
The main goals of Graphene 3D are:
- Develop and fabricate polymer nanocomposite material, doped by a mix of graphene and carbon nanotubes, with multifunctional property enhancement of the host polymer and high improvement potential, for 3D printing application.
- Use the multifunctional nanocomposite material to fabricate optimized 3D printed cellular structures with extraordinary electromagnetic wave absorption, high thermal conductivity, mechanical strength and lightness that have strong potential for application in new generation EM sensors, detectors, or heat exchange devices for power electronics.
