What is Graphene?

Short film produced by the European Graphene - Flagship initiative, introducing graphene, the 'wonder substance' set to revolutionise the electronics industry.

On 1 December 2016, Professor Andre Geim gave the public lecture: A Random Walk to Graphene. Graphene - a single plane of carbon atoms - is probably the simplest material one can imagine. On the other hand, graphene has acquired so many superlatives to its name that people started calling it a wonder material.

Graphene Flagship Expert Minds. In conversation with Konstantin Novoselov Professor at the University of Manchester, UK -What was the original idea behind the Graphene experiment? (0:00) -You shared the method openly with other labs. Why did you do so and do you regret doing so? (2:39) - What is so special about Graphene?

Graphene is a single layer atomic layer of graphite. Graphene was first isolated at The University of Manchester by Sir Kostya Novoselov and Sir Andre Geim. Being the first to isolate graphene as well as subsequent unravelling of graphene's material properties that followed their discovery won both Novoselov and Geim the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010.

This animated video from graphene company Bluestone Global Tech simply illustrates the amazing properties of graphene -- "the wonder material" -- and explains why it will "Redefine Everything!"
What is Graphene? We take a look at this amazing material. Derived from Graphite, Graphene is the world's first 2D material. Over 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair; it's just a single atom deep. It's super flexible, incredibly light and very conductive.

If you haven't heard of it before, you have now. And it may prove to be the next big thing in materials science. SciShow explains what it is, why it's so awesome, and what challenges we face in harnessing its amazing properties.

Graphene - TEDx

Shou-En Zhu | TEDxDelft

Graphene, a nano-structure, has many different usages. For instance, imagine a world where you would be able to desalinate water with a tool that can fit in your pocket or windows that can produce power because of it's conductivity and clarity.

Graphene. These just one-atom thick carbon structures is without doubt the most buzzed-about material in the world of science today. Kostya Novoselov and André Geim was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for their work on the matter and right now research teams all over the world are competing to turn knowledge into applications.

How is Graphene made?

Often dubbed "the wonder material", graphene promises exciting applications -- from flexible electronics to energy storage. Physics World reporter James Dacey visits the University of Manchester to learn how graphene is made and why it is so special.

Characteristics of Graphene

How many types of graphene are there? Graphene is commonly thought of as monolayer graphene which is a one atom thick sheet of carbon atoms. In this video we look at the growing family of graphene-related materials. The tuneability of graphene and other 2D materials is important for new areas of applications.

In this video find out about graphene's high conductivity and its limitless applications. Graphene can conduct electricity even better than copper and this gives graphene endless applications including conductive paints and inks, next generation electronics and more efficient batteries. Narrated by Dr. Sarah Haigh a lecturer in Materials Characterisation.

In this video, find out how flexible graphene is and how its flexibility can be used for emerging technologies. Graphene could be used in the development of future technology and could be the key to creating flexible electronics. Graphene's flexibility could be used in emerging technologies such as rollerball computers, heat sensitive clothing and flexible phones.
In this video, we find out how strong graphene is. Graphene is the strongest material known to man. It is over 200 times stronger than steel. The strength of graphene could be used in composites and coatings for applications in areas such as aerospace and automotive industries.

Graphene's great strength appears to be determined by how well it stretches before it breaks, according to Rice University scientists who tested the material's properties by peppering it with microbullets. The two-dimensional carbon honeycomb discovered a decade ago is thought to be much stronger than steel.

Graphene has many amazing properties, which can be exploited to aid in the development of future technology. Graphene is transparent, meaning that we could see TV's built into windows and Sat Navs built into car windscreens in the future of electronics. Narrated by Dr. Sarah Haigh a lecturer in Materials Characterisation.

Graphene can be used for a number of today's devices but what does graphene mean for the next generation of technology? The narrator is Dr. Sarah Haigh, a lecturer in Materials Characterisation. Her research focuses on the structure and properties of nanomaterials using high resolution transmission electron microscope (TEM) imaging and spectroscopic analysis.

Graphene Sensors.

Graphene is an excellent material for application in sensor technology. Because every atom of graphene is exposed to it's environment meaning it can detect changes in it's surroundings. In this video of the series we explore what this ability to sense even individual molecules means for applications.

See what graphene can do for energy! Highlights from the Graphene Flagship exhibition at Mobile World Congress 2017 includes a high capacity graphene-based supercapacitor that charges in seconds and an interactive, ultra-thin and flexible heating system.

Professor Richard Kaner set out to find a new way to make graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on earth. What he found was a new way to power the world. GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best technologies taking on the toughest challenges.

Despite the miniaturisation and energy requirements of modern electronics, battery technology has lagged behind. Modern lithium ion batteries suffer from slow charging times and a relatively short effective lifetime. Graphene can be incorporated into battery technology to greatly enhance its efficiency.
A supercapacitor is a device that can store energy. It can be rapidly charged and discharged making it different from a battery, which takes much longer to charge. Due to graphene's unique material characteristics such as it's conductivity, it's high surface area, it's mechanical robustness and flexibility it's considered an ideal material to incorporate into supercapacitors.

Graphene in Liquid Purification.

Graphene can be used to help turn contaminated water into safe drinking water - desalination. Graphene based membranes can be modified to have a lot of tiny pores or spaces, meaning harmful molecules can be blocked or filtered out. Filtering dirty water into clean water in real time is one of the potentials that graphene holds for the future of technology.
Standard Graphene shows their water filtering system using their graphene layer to help filter river water for it to be fully fresh drinkable, they are talking to the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government and talking with UNICEF to bring this to Africa.

Graphene in Solar.

Graphene is a material made up of single-atom thick sheets of carbon which makes graphene flexible, conductive, transparent and abundant. Currently, researchers are trying to fully incorporate graphene into thin-film solar cells due to graphene's high conductance and transparency; however, graphene cannot hold an electrical charge as well as some other materials.
