Caption: Graphene. Coloured 3D computer visualisation of graphene (red) with isolated hydrogen atoms (purple) based on data from a transmission electron micrograph (TEM). The taller peaks are amorphous carbon. 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.
