What is Graphene? 

Graphene is a one-atom-thick planar sheet of sp2-bonded carbon atoms. Each Graphene sheet of carbon atoms, interconnected with three strong atomic bonds. The resulting hexagonal structure resembles a honeycombed chicken wire.











Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 "for ground-breaking experiments regarding the two dimensional material Graphene.
