It is about 20 years since the invention of the miracle substance, but graphene is used in only a few products. A revolution is coming, scientists around the world are convincing – also in Finland.
What have a paddle racket, a motorcycle helmet, headphones and bicycle tires in common? All of them have been made using smoky graphene as a miracle.
Graphene is a two-dimensional substance consisting of only one layer of carbon atoms bonded together. The miracle substance was discovered in 2004 by physicists at the University of Manchester in the UK Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim detached an atom-thick carbon film from the graphite used in pencils.
