Graphene - your handy take-away guide

Summary:Graphene is getting some decent press at last. Its Nobel prize winning discovery has quickly mutated into an entire field of enquiry, as the material's unique electrical, mechanical and inspirational qualities are explored and put to work.

Graphene is getting some decent press at last. Its Nobel prize winning discovery has quickly mutated into an entire field of enquiry, as the material's unique electrical, mechanical and inspirational qualities are explored and put to work.

We've been covering graphene for a while, and earlier in the year we created a beginner's guide for anyone who's heard of it and wants to get a quick update on what it is, why it's so important and where it may be going. It's been very popular. There's been some very respectable traffic to the various pieces in the report, including the ten weirdest things about graphene, what's going to happen next, and the reasons it behaves as it does.

You can, of course, dip into that whenever you like — and check out Lucy Sherriff's Qubits and Pieces blog, where the news just keeps coming — but now we've repackaged our graphene special report as a handy white paper: Graphene, a guide to the future.

Free to download, it's useful for reference, education or just out of plain interest. And as it's a PDF, it doesn't matter what you want to read it on. You can even print it out, just like an old-fashioned white paper.

We'll be producing more content bundles like this, so let us know if there's any area in particular you'd find useful.
