Graphene: history, controversy and the Nobel prize

Mar 16, 2017

Graphene, the much-hyped 2D matrix of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, is the lightest, strongest, thinnest material known to man, as well as the best heat and electricity conductor ever discovered - and the list does not end there. Graphene is the subject of relentless research and is thought to be able to revolutionize entire industries, as researchers hypothesize many potential kinds of graphene-based materials and applications.

The excitement surrounding graphene soared since Sir Andre Geim and Sir Kostya Novoselov were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene". Geim and Novoselov extracted graphene from graphite, using the "scotch tape" method, to obtain a piece of graphene (or carbon) one atom thick.

Meet the Graphene-Info team at Graphene & 2D Materials Europe 2017

Feb 28, 2017

On May 10-11, IdTechEx will host its annual Graphene & 2D Materials Europe event, as part of its Printed Electronics Europe, that will focus on the commercialization of graphene and other 2D materials. The Graphene-Info team will visit this event, so if anyone wishes to schedule a meeting - now is a great time to do so!

The graphene & 2D materials event is co-located with eight other events focused on printed & flexible electronics, electric vehicles, energy harvesting, energy storage, internet of things, wearables and sensors.
