Graphene the New Super-material for the Telcom Industry

Graphene is the material of the future. Nokia recently showed off a concept device (called Morph) made of Graphene. The material is believed to be the new future-changing super-material for the electronics world. Chemically, Graphene is a carbon allotrope which has a very thin structure (one atom thick). Despite its thinness, Nokia claimed it to be “the strongest (as well as the lightest) material ever tested, having a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel…” It is also described as the best intrinsic conductor and an extremely-flexible material. According to experts Graphene has the potential to replace silicon as the base of entire electronics. There are already more than 3,000 research projects dedicated to the research and development of Graphene. Currently there are about 200 companies working with the material. Samsung, one of the largest investors in graphene research, has developed a flexible 25 inch touch screen with it. Nokia looks to use graphene in the future in the construction of their phones. This would make the phones bendable. This could be the next big step in the telecom industry…
