Advanced materials with low density and high strength have transformative impacts in construction, aerospace and automobile industries. These materials are realized with integrating well-designed modular building units into interconnected structures. Here, we present a hierarchical design strategy to demonstrate a new class of carbon-based closed-cellular structures (CCS). The building units are prepared by a multi-scale approach starting from functionalized graphene oxide nanosheets, leading to the microfluidic synthesis of solid-shelled bubbles with shape diversity at the micro-scale, followed by the assembly into meso-scale 3D structures. Subsequently, these are transformed into self-interconnected and structurally-reinforced CCS, resulting in graphene lattices with rhombic dodecahedral honeycomb structures at the centimeter-scale. The 3D suprastructure simultaneously exhibits the Young’s modulus above 300 kPa while retaining a light density of 7.7 mg/cm3 and the elasticity against up to 80% of the compressive strain. The fabricated 3D CCS opens a new pathway for designing lightweight, strong, and superelastic materials.

The CEA-Grenoble site is a regulated access/restricted area. The access to the Blg C5/Room 421A is conditioned to a CEA badge request to be made NO LATER THAN Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019 at 3:00 pm. Please contact Patrice Rannou  and send an electronic version of your passport/ID. Please do note that a valid ID (National ID card or passport only) will be required to collect your badge at the main entrance (Blg A2) of CEA- Grenoble (17 Avenue des martyrs, 38054 Grenoble Cedex 9). Last but not the least, do take into account that Blg C5 is located at a walking distance of ca. 10 min from the Blg A2 where you will collect your badge. Collecting your badge ca. 15-30 minutes before the start of the invited seminar is recommended.
