The Graphene Industry Updates

The Graphene Industry Updates | Graphene nanotechnology | Scoop.it
What has really pushed up excitement levels about graphene is its combination of conductivity, strength and transparency in a single material. Novoselov and Geim's deceptively simple experiments to isolate the material in 2004 started after they watched colleagues who were studying crystals of graphite. These scientists would use sticky tape to peel a layer off the top of the graphite and use powerful microscopes to study the surface of the crystal beneath. Instead of looking at the crystal, Novoselov picked up one of the used pieces of tape which would normally have been thrown away.

They then started their own experiments with graphite and tape.

"You just press it against the graphite, peel it off and there is a thin layer of graphite left on the tape. Usually it's many atoms thick and you have to continually peel more," he said. "Honestly, we never thought we can get into monolayers. Many people thought it would be unstable and that you cannot get it all."

Scientists knew about graphene before Novoselov and Geim carried out their experiments, but no one believed that a single layer could be isolated and studied or electronic devices made from it. Other scientists were so sceptical about Geim and Novoselov's research paper, containing the results of the experiments that would later win them a Nobel prize, that it was rejected by a scientific journal. The paper subsequently appeared in the top US journal Science.

Graphene | Graphene Research Centre | Graphene nanotechnology | Scoop.it

Graphene research is a relatively young field, being “founded” in 2004-2005 by a series of papers that involved several groups around the world including the Manchester and Columbia groups. Graphene was quickly recognized as an interesting material because there was an entire community of researchers working on related materials, namely, graphite, fullerenes, and carbon nanotubes. All these materials can be thought as directly related to graphene (graphite = stacked graphene, fullerenes = wrapped graphene, nanotubes = rolled graphene - see Fig.1). It was relatively simple for these researchers to move from an area that was scientifically saturated to a new one with minimal amount of investment in terms of resources
