Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2004, the pure carbon material known as graphene was isolated by two University of Manchester Nobel Laureates, Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov, quickly leading to the discovery of a whole new family of one-atom-thick materials. Now researchers from the University of Manchester and National University of Singapore have shown that by building multi-layered heterostructures of graphene in a three-dimensional stack,...

‘Graphene Roadmap’ Paves The Way
2012-10-11 08:05:36

April Flowers for redOrbit.com — Your University Online Graphene is the world's thinnest, strongest, and most conductive material. It is made of pure carbon, and only one atom thick. Nobel prizewinner Professor Kostya Novoselov and an international team have created a "Graphene Roadmap" to show what the material could truly achieve. Graphene was first isolated in 2004 at the University of Manchester by Professor Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim. The paper, published in Nature,...

Graphene, discovered in 2004 at The University of Manchester by Professor Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov, is one of the world's most versatile materials, and is already being used in such varied applications as touch screens, transistors and aircraft wings. Researchers from the University are presenting the vast potential of the wonder material at the Royal Society's annual Summer Science Exhibition which opens today (5 July 2010). The display aims to tell the remarkable story of...
