Meet Graphene, a new substance in development that is 300 times stronger than steel, yet light as a feather. This material of the future has the tiny thickness of just one atom.
Currently, Silicon and Germanium are the materials of choice when creating semiconductors, which are the primary components of all electronics. Graphene is the innovative material that just may replace Silicon as the best for semiconductors. It will be able to conduct electrons more than 10 times faster than Silicon! A large amount of money has been spent into the continuing development and research of this super material. If Graphene will be available in the future, technology will advance even greater by being more efficient, durable, and lightweight.
