Future is Graphene

Today, a new material has the potential to alter the future. Dubbed a “supermaterial,” graphene has researchers the world over scrambling to better understand it. The material’s long list of superlative traits make it seem almost magical, but it could have very real and drastic implications for the future of physics and engineering.

Graphene, a single sheet of graphite with a honeycomb (hexagonal) lattice structure of carbon atoms, is a rising star early of the 21st century, because of it is truly two-dimensional crystalline material and has unmatched excellent properties.

Graphene has properties such as outstanding surface area to mass ratio (2,630 m2/g), high thermal conductivity (5,000 W/mK), optical transparency (97.7 %) and high electron mobility (250000 cm2/Vs). The unique properties of graphene can be employed in a range of applications such as electronic, composite material, batteries and sensor technology.
