Is graphene in the past?! Found a new miracle material!

• Innovative Techs -

Graphene is considered one of the most futuristic materials with a wide range of applications in the field of new technologies.

The breakthrough character of this material lies primarily in its two-dimensionality. From a physical point of view, it is a layer of individual carbon atoms arranged in a hexagon, visually similar to a honeycomb.

Graphene is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Even today it is considered the successor of silicon in the field of electronics.

As a transparent and flexible conductor, the material can be used to produce photocells, roll up projection screens, touch panels, as well as LED lamps.

It also greatly increases the frequency of the electromagnetic signal, allowing the production of faster transistors. The European Union has already invested 1 billion euros to kick-start the graphene industry.

At the same time, the success of graphene forced scientists to pay attention to similar properties of flat surfaces made of other elements.
