The purpose of the graduation thesis is to present the reader the graphene in vary possible forms. Starting with the definition of the graphene and how it varies from graphite, nanotubes and other GRM, continuing with a short history of the material.
Than I tried to focus on its properties, which attract many interests of researchers, industries but also government institutions which are putting a lot of efforts and funds through vary sheems into research and development projects. I focused the most on electronic properties, but we can not neglect others like thermal conductivity which has an important role in electronic design, or optic properties which shall impact on photovoltaic industy and sensor industry.
All the endevors in searching the new applicative solutions i.e. energy storage or hydrogen storage, lead us from very simple monolayer graphene structures or carbon nanotubes to more complex, 3-D structures, reinforced structures, and others which are described and visauly presented in the next paragraph.
I also tried to highlight some production techniques, which are still mostly performed in laboratories but are still very lucrative. In the last year at the University in Glasgow was developed a techniqe, which may reduce the production costs for 100 times. A significant reduction of material price is expected when the production will massively pass from research athmosphere to industy.
Regarding the magnificant material properties is expected a wide range of use, but more precisely it is very unpleasant to prospect. In the last chapter I decided to show how all the properties may reflect to our everyday life-style and leverage the quality of mobility. For that purpose I desribed the possibility of hydrogen storage, which represent one of the most possible frequent and clean fuel. Afterward I put attention to the battery applications, its autonomy and fast charging properties.
In the conclusion of the graduation thesis I have expressed a very possitive expectations into aplicative solutions in the field of electronics, biomedicine, construction sector and mechanics.
