This gives him a unique set of properties. Since 18 59 Many scientists were looking for graphene using complex experiments. But the first crystals of graphene were discovered in 2000 and four, using a very simple and effective method, namely ordinary Scotch tape. During Friday evening experiments in Manchester, scientists noticed small parts of graphene on the tape used to clean a graphite stone. The two scientists, Andrey Game and Constantino Vasilev, were awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 for this simple but ground breaking experiment. Thanks to the Scotch tape method, this area of science grew extremely quickly, and today hundreds of laboratories all over the world deal with different aspects of G research. What makes Mr G a really super material is the combination of his unique properties. G is the first to de Cristal ever known to us. The thinnest object ever obtained on also the lightest one G is the world's strongest material harder than diamond Onda, about 300 times stronger than steel G conducts electricity much better than copper. G is a transparent material. G is bendable on. Could take any form you want on this unique super material gave birth to a new class of crystals that also are just one atom thin. And what's more fantastic is that these could be shuffled with each other to engineer new materials on demand to meet the special needs of different industries. Aled These factors moved graphene swiftly from the G research laboratory to the G marketplace, driven by demand from industries where such super materials are required. Aerospace, automotive, electron ICS, energy storage coatings and paints, communications sensor, solar oil, etcetera. Thanks to mass production methods intensively being developed, expect to meet Mr G in person soon.
