Some new lab equipment arrived that will allow us to start on other experimental research. We received tube ends for our quartz furnace and water cooled tube ends for our graphite furnace. A maximum temperature of 2500 C will be achieved by using induction heating and is the limit of our pyrometer… Under the right conditions we will be well within the graphitization range. Although what is interesting is that preliminary experiments have shown that it is possible to form Vertical Aligned Graphene Nano Arrays (VAGNAs) at lower temperatures. It is exciting to discover a great material that is quite easily made from biomass.
