Chancellor George Osborne has promised £50 million for research into graphene, the carbon-based material tipped as a breakthrough in material science, nanotechnology and electronics.Graphene was discovered in 2004 by Dr (now Professor) Kostya Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim from the University of Manchester in work that won them the 2010 Nobel Prize for physics.

Two teams of US researchers have got their eye on graphene to advance the state of the art in medical imaging, communications and security screening, thanks to its strong response to the terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum.Writing in Nature Nanotechnology, scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley, explain how nanoribbons of graphene could form the "beginnings of a toolset" for working with terahertz radiation.
A team from the University of Manchester has managed to carve an electronic circuit out of graphene, a very thin carbon structure with huge implications for nanotechnology
