    An amazing material doesn't do it justice! There is going to be a technology revolution around the stuff. Sad part is the us of a isn't looking into it at all way behind technology advancement as usual / sigh.. mark my words this stuff is going to revolutionize how we do things in the electronic world and technology and best part is we have yet to scratch the surface on what it can do

    And I could post countless more but I'll just stick with 2 for now

    Just think what computers could do with a grapheme based CPU!!

    World record CPU over clock is 9ghz.. grapheme transistor was clocked at 437ghz

    I realize clock speed is the desired goal here, but I am willing to bet it requires rare and expensive materials.
    Graphene is abundant and cheap and look at the perfect connectivity achieved at the single atom level.

    Transistor was made out of grapheme just need to optimize it

    I found Graphene very useful in the mid 1990's when fixing broken television remotes. I reasoned due to the conductive properties that it was possible to use a pencil to rub in a cracked circuit board and then tape over the top to generate a temporary fix. It wouldn't be good at high voltages but was good enough to keep the remote ticking over when it got broke.

    (I guess that's why Astronaut's shouldn't leave earth without a pencil and some tape)

    sorry, I missed the significance of the numbers you quoted. Seems that graphene is ideally suited to computer application.

    Seems China is way ahead of us in planning for the future.

    It gets wilder.

    does that mean protein based computers (lots of carbon) and graphene as connecting structure and substrate is the way to super computers?

    Graphene IS carbon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene

    This is a game changer. It changes medicine, computers, construction, etc. Now all we got to do is make it.

    I am setting up a high level research institute. I plan to add this as a part of research and development.....thank you.

    The biggest challenge in bringing graphene into fruition is the production process. From what I've read Samsung is investing heavily into creating something that's more efficient than applying sticky tape to graphite. I've also read about something similar to graphene called Stanene which is suppose to have 100% electrical conductivity.
