It’s stronger than steel, lightweight, flexible and it is a better conductor than silicon. It’s called graphene, and Poland is the first country in the world to be capable of producing it on an industrial scale.
Polish scientists from the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology are now working on obtaining an international patent for their mass production technology, Gazeta Wyborcza reports.
They will probably get financial support from Polish and European Union authorities for their patenting efforts.
Since its discovery in 2004, graphene’s properties have amazed scientists. It is 100 times stronger than steel. It can be stretched by 20 percent and does not break. It is transparent and made of materials available in abundance, making it an ideal material for electronics.
