What is graphene?
Graphene is a material comprised of a sheet of carbon just one atom thick. It has many useful properties:
- It is ultra-light yet immensely tough
- It is 200 times stronger than steel, but it is incredibly flexible
- It is the thinnest material possible as well as being transparent
- It is a superb conductor
- It can act as a perfect barrier – not even helium can pass through it
Researchers at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, based at The University of Cambridge, utilise Microfluidics High Pressure Homogeniser Fluid Processors in the production of graphene.
CNBC’s Willem Marx reports on the research going into graphene to unlock the paper-thin material’s potential in everyday usage…
