Caption: Computer artwork of a close-up showing carbyne, a one-dimensional carbon-based structure, is produced by rolling up two sheets of graphene (grey, yellow) to form a protective tube, with te carbyne (red) placed within. Carbyne is also called super carbon, because it is thought to be 40x stiffer than diamond and twice as stiff as graphe. The material's incredible strength-to-weight promises a very exciting future for construction and mechanical use as well as having excellent electrical conductivity making it a key component for the design of nanoelectronics as well as optomechanical devices.
