Caption: Graphene transistor. Physicist Andre Geim holds a graphene transistor in a pair of tweezers. Graphene is composed of a single layer of carbon atoms that is both flexible and very strong. It conducts electrons faster than silicon and could one day replace silicon in applications such as nanometre (billionths of a metre) sized electronics, cheap and efficient solar panels, transparent window coatings and miniature sensing technologies. Graphene was discovered by Geim in 2004.
