Such is the importance of this new material that it could revolutionize the future of nanotechnology – it is expected that graphene will transform high-speed electronics and photonics, particularly as a replacement for silicon microchips and touchscreen technology, LCD displays and solar cells. Due to its strength and transparency, it is ideal for these applications, while its conductivity would offer a huge increase in efficiency on existing materials.
