Saab wants to take advantage of graphene's lightness and conductivity by embedding it in wings for deicing. The research is still in early stages, "but it is certainly part of our plan for introducing flying applications," says Mats Palmberg, who oversees future products at Saab's aeronautics unit.
Lockheed expects its graphene membrane to be "more effective at seawater desalination at a fraction of the cost" of current technologies, it says in a news release.
The discovery of graphene has also led scientists to hunt down scores of other two-dimensional materials with unusual properties, says Dr. Geim, the Nobel laureate. "Graphene opened up a material world we didn't even know existed."
Wish there was some sort of reference to CVD Equipment in this article. That would have lit a fire under this stock. It is the closest thing to a "pure play" on graphene manufacturing. You could do mining stocks like Focus Graphite, or Northern Graphite, but the they are far sketchier right now. At least the guys at InvestInGraphene are onboard with this one.
