Tsinghua – MIT team reveals energy coupling mechanism between cells and a graphene interface.

The group of Zhiping XU at Tsinghua University and MJ Buehler at MIT have found that layered structures of water at the nanometer interface between cells and graphene have a lower diffusion coefficient compared to bulk water, leading to reduced thermal resistance between cells and graphene. This helps in an efficient heat dissipation in bio-nanodevices and may lead to thermal manipulation of cells.
