Graphene - the next great innovation in technology and industry
Graphene is a two-dimensional form of carbon. As a material it is completely new – not only the thinnest ever but also the strongest. Graphene presents one of the greatest technological advancements in the world today. Graphene can be used in a multitude of technologies to make devices flexible, thinner, transparent and more powerful.
As a conductor of heat it outperforms all other known materials. As a conductor of electricity it performs as well as copper. It is almost completely transparent, yet so dense that not even helium, the smallest gas atom, can pass through it.
The uses developed for graphene years from now will be mind-blowing to what is being conceived today. All of which is due to the unique properties of graphene:
- 10x better heat conductivity than copper;
- 1000x the electrical current capacity of copper wire;
- 200x stronger than structural steel;
- 20% flexibility without any damage.
