Graphene

Graphene, a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, may revolutionize technology in the 21st century, say experts. Its seemingly magical optical, mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical properties have given this material superhero-like status. Graphene is the strongest material ever found, harder than diamond and 300 times harder than steel, yet it is also stretchable like rubber and one of the thinnest materials in the world. This and several other features make graphene the go-to material for applications such as extremely strong composite materials, flexible displays and nano-transistors. Being ultra-light yet nearly indestructible also makes graphene perfect for the aerospace and automotive industries. Its conductivity, a measure of how fast electrons can move through it, has also generated tons of interest by the semiconductor industry. Our news and features will cover the latest developments in graphene science and how this superlative material is being used in innovative technologies.
