A Look at the Future of Electronics with Graphene as King
Are the Days of Silicon Numbered?
You would not be reading this article on your computer or smartphone if it wasn’t for the legendary element silicon (Si). It is used in nearly every piece of electronics, powering the brains of the operation in our advanced microprocessors.
What’s stronger than steel, as hard as a diamond, and a million times thinner than paper?
The answer to this question has been heralded as, “a new miracle in the material world,” by The Telegraph, Forbes calls it “the next billion-dollar super material” and Business Insider says it will “change the world”.
What is most amazing about graphene is the fact that it can be applied to improve countless things that we use every single day. The following list will touch on thirteen different ways that graphene will revolutionize existing products.
One: Graphene is only one atom thick! This makes it mathematically two dimensional and one of the thinnest materials imaginable. It’s made of carbon, and, at a molecular level, its hexagon lattice structure looks just like chicken wire.
