Scientists have prepared a new industrial revolution

July 22 2005

They have the properties previously considered unthinkable. These materials are not only ultra-thin, but, according to type of environment, yet heavy duty. They can act as a role other than insulators, and as a great conductor. Such a wide range of unique characteristics - a real find for engineers and designers of the space age.

"Our discovery opens up practically bezgrnichnye of applications, which previously no one had dreamed of - says Professor Geim. - These materials are lightweight, durable, flexible, and their choice is simply huge. Benefit from them will not only be in microelectronics. As in his time polymers are forever changed human life and monatomic materials come into our lives in many different applications - from clothing to computers. "

One of the Russian researchers from Chernogolovka, Konstantin Novoselov, said: "Most importantly, our discovery does not apply to the development of one or two materials. This is a whole class of materials, thousands, and they Prorva various properties. And even though some of their applications will be demand in the future, I hope that the ultra-fast transistors, micromechanical devices and nanosensors on the basis of such materials will in a few years, "reports Computerra.
