Findings could have applications in high-speed communications fields. Graphene has caused a lot of excitement among scientists since the extremely strong and thin carbon material was discovered in 2004. Just one atom thick, the honeycomb-shaped material has several remarkable properties combining mechanical toughness with superior electrical and thermal conductivity. Now a group of scientists at Iowa State University and the Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory, led by physicist...
