Graphene research, 3D model. Lighter colours correspond to slightly higher relative positions. Waves depict the bonds between carbon atoms in the honeycomb lattice. Graphene is made up of hexagonally packed carbon atoms. It is highly transparent thermally conductive, flexible chemically inert, biologically compatible and 200 times stronger than steel. This research was carried out at Argonne National Laboratory, Illinois, USA. Image published in March 2014.
