Graphene is widely considered as one of the most promising materials discovered in the past decade.
What Is Graphene ?
Graphene is a one atom thin layer of pure carbon in hexagonal arrangement which is one million times thinner than paper and is nearly transparent. It is the strongest material ever measured. It is known as a material with the best performances in strength, toughness, weight, light transmittance and electrical conductivity. Graphene is widely considered as one of the most promising materials discovered in the past decade.
Graphene vs. Graphite
The properties of graphene depend on the number of layers we use. When we use more than 10 layers of graphene sheets behaves like graphite.
