Researchers at the University of Manchester in England used graphene, which is derived from the abundant natural resource graphite, as a transparent conductive coating for electro-optical devices instead of indium, a metal that is becoming increasingly expensive as supplies dwindle. They used the method to make LCDs that contain graphene electrodes, a technology they said could be mass-produced in computers, TVs, mobile phones and other electronic devices within a few years.
