First Graphene Transistor and Alfred Nobel's Will at Nobel Museum Can Impress Anyone

Graphene consists of a network of carbon atoms just one atom thick. It was discovered by Professor Sir Andre Geim and Professor Sir Konstantin Novoselov, researchers at the University of Manchester, England, in 2004. The physicists used regular Scotch tape to separate thin flakes of carbon from a piece of graphite. Graphite is a form of carbon like the one used in pencils. Physicists had anticipated that extremely thin flakes of graphite would have interesting properties. However, it was consi
