Laser technique could unlock use of tough material for next-generation electronics

June 3, 2019

In 2004, researchers discovered a super thin material that is at least a 100 times stronger than steel and the best known conductor of heat and electricity. This means that the material, graphene, could bring faster electronics than is possible today with silicon
