What is it?

First physically isolated in 2004, graphene is a 2-D sheet of carbon. It has been noted as the wonder material of the 21st century for its remarkable physical properties. Not only is it the thinnest and lightest substance ever known, but also the strongest (more than 100 times stronger than steel with tensile strength around 130 gigapascals). Graphene’s atomic structure also makes it a great conductor, allowing it to transport electricity nearly 200 times faster than silicon.
