Beyond Graphene: New Nanomaterials For Solar Energy, Computers, Curing Cancer And A Lot More

Graphene has been theorized by scientists for decades, but it was only in 2004 that these atom-thin sheets of carbon (in the form of graphite) were isolated, leading to the two scientists responsible for the feat — Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester — being awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. This material has many unusual properties that have excited researchers ever since it was isolated for its potential applications in fields as diverse as energy, electronics, medicine, sensors, light processing, and water filtration. But science…
