Graphene standards vital for energy storage
With graphene being a
promising material for
storing hydrogen, and to
act as a catalyst in supercapacitors, it’s important that international
standards for measuring the electrical reliability of graphene are developed.
It’s good to see that the US Technical Advisory Group to IEC TC 113 (TC 113 TAG) is taking the lead in developing
these standards, starting with a blank detail material specification, graphene
characterization using atomic force microscopy (AFM), and process
specifications for incorporating graphene into large-scale manufacturing environments.
Experts in graphene manufacturing and research need to join the TAG to ensure that the these
standards meet industry’s needs and that US stakeholders are represented at the
