Caption: Graphene, coloured 3D computer visualisation. This image is based on data from a transmission electron micrograph (TEM). The black hole at top was created intentionally to see how the molecule would repair itself. Graphene is composed of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb crystal lattice. It is both flexible and very strong and conducts electrons faster than silicon. It 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 Andre Geim in 2004.
