Carbon breakthrough could mean cheap, eternally stretching graphene [Materials Science]

3 years agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Graphene, the eternally stretching two-dimensional form of carbon, is one of the most promising synthetic materials in existence, but is still costly to produce to specification. New research released in the PNAS shows a simple and cheap way to produce the stuff, and could herald a graphene revolution. More ยป
