Graphene

Graphene is a crystalline form of carbon, alongside diamond, graphite, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. In this material, carbon atoms are arranged in a regular hexagonal pattern. Graphene is a one-atom thick layer of the layered mineral graphite. High-quality graphene is very strong, light, nearly transparent, and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Its interaction with other materials and with light, and its inherently two-dimensional nature, produce unique properties.

The European Commission has chosen Graphene as one of Europe’s first 10-year, EUR1000 million FET flagships. The mission of the Graphene Flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionize multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe.

An extensive historical discussion of the development of graphene is also available on Wikipedia.
