Graphene: The 2-dimensional allotrope of carbon is the thinnest material known to man. Just one atom thick, it is incredibly strong - about 200 times stronger than steel. Its desirable properties like transparency and superconductivity have made it extremely useful in ‘Smart Contact Lens’ for sugar-level monitoring, in mobile batteries for charging 5-times faster and in solar cells for being 50% more efficient (as compared to the current 14%!). Read further to learn more about this 'wonder' nanomaterial showing some revolutionary future applications, however, facing only one challenge - mass production.
