How “Graphene” will leap frog Mobility

Graphene is one the worlds best kept secrets. Especially as it is nothing short of becoming the most important enabler for a revolution in electronics but more particularly in mobility.

To summarise graphene has the capacity to turn consumer electronics into a world of flexible, paper thin, super light, unbreakable devices. “You could theoretically roll up your iPhone and stick it behind your ear like a pencil,” stated Professor James Tour, of Rice University. But beyond traditional electronic devices we know today it will enable many new fields of innovation just like “plastics” did in the 50ties.

No surprise that Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester who discovered graphene won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”.[4]
