Researchers from Canada's Queen's University discovered a way to create graphene based materials using a simple and cheap method. The only information released by the university details how this new bottom-up method replaces some carbon atoms with boron and nitrogen atoms, which enables the use of light exposure on the compounds to grow graphene-like honeycomb lattices.

The researchers have filed for a patent on this technology. Hopefully we'll learn more about this development soon.
