    Konstantin Novoselow and Andre Geim were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for physics.
  • 15. History
    • The theory behind the substance graphene was first explored by theoretical physicist Philip Wallace in 1947.
    • 16. In 1960’s it was believed that physically graphene cannot exist abecause of thermodynamic unstability
    • 17. Graphene in itself however wasn't discovered until 2004 in its full observable and testable form
    • 18. Since then, in the past 6 years, scientists have discovered that the substance retains some amazing properties.
    • 19. Single layers of graphite were previously (starting from the 1970s) grown epitaxially on top of other materials.
    • 20. There have also been a number of efforts to make very thin films of graphite by mechanical exfoliation
    • 21. A key advance in the science of graphene was brought by  Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at Manchester University 
    • 22. Scotch tape technique
  • Structure of Graphene
    Sheets of graphene are bonded by loose bond in graphite. These bonds are broken and sheets are isolated to form graphene. These isolated hexagonal sheets are graphene.

    15,000 cm2V−1s−1
    Graphene differs from most conventional three-dimensional materials.
    Intrinsic graphene is a semi-metal or zero-gap semiconductor
    Graphene has a remarkably high electron mobility at room temperature
    The mobility is nearly independent of temperature between 10 K and 100 K
     Resistivity of the graphene sheet would be 10−6 Ω·cm.
    Optical properties
    it absorbs πα ≈ 2.3% of white light
    Unexpectedlyhigh opacity for an atomic monolayer
    This is "a consequence of the unusual low-energy electronic structure of monolayer graphene
    It is further confirmed that such unique absorption could become saturated when the input optical intensity is above a threshold value
    Due to this special property, graphene has wide application in ultrafast photonics
  • 39. Thermal properties
    The near-room temperature thermal conductivity of graphene was recently measured to be between (4.84±0.44) ×103 to (5.30±0.48) ×103 Wm−1K−1.
    Mechanical properties
    As of 2009, graphene appears to be one of the strongest materials ever tested.
    200 times greater than steel
    Bulk strength is 130GPa

    • The large scale production of highly transparent graphene films by chemical vapour deposition three years ago. In this process, researchers create ultra-thin graphene sheets by first depositing carbon atoms in the form of graphene films on a nickel plate from methane gas. Then they lay down a protective layer of thermo plastic over the graphene layer and dissolve the nickel underneath in an acid bath. In the final step they attach the plastic-protected graphene to a very flexible polymer sheet, which can then be incorporated into a OPV cell (graphenephotovoltaics).
