Graphene seems to be popping up all over the place recently, this latest announcement holds potential for long-term green energy for small electronics.

In the article below, scientists have discovered a controversial property of graphene that could lead to “limitless” low voltage energy.

The discovery centres on graphene’s ability to generate small amounts of electrical power from an atomic property of materials known as Brownian motion.

This is where the controversy starts – the well known physicist Richard Feynman asserted that this thermal motion of atoms cannot do work, yet scientists here are suggesting they can.

If this discovery can industrialised and transferred to silicon it could have exciting possibilities, enabling long term emission-free energy harvesting for small electronic devices.
