You are Looking at the Future - Called Graphene - Page 2
As you know, because of the transistor, it has paved the path for all variety of modern consumer electronics devices and computers. (Computers are just incredibly densely packed transistors on a single chip).
Back to the future: Graphene. So what IS graphene stuff? Quite literally, it is a sheet of carbon atoms, 1 molecule thick. It was first isolated by Professors Konstantin Novoselov and Andrew Geim and Manchester University in 2004 in England.
Imagine, for similarity, a sheet of seran wrap made of carbon atoms just 1 molecule thick. That sheet, in theory/principal, is so strong, you could put an elephant on top of a pencil, with the point of the pencil digging into the graphene sheet, and it wouldn't break. If you stacked 3 million sheets of graphene on top of each other, it would only be 1mm thick.
Graphene is seven times stronger than diamond, but it will stretch like rubber, it is nearly invisible, 200 times stronger than steel, and almost weightless, and unlike most everything else in nature, it is a truly 2 dimentional structure. This means it has unique properties, like it will conduct electricity better than anything we currently have available. Carbon is one of the most common substances in the world, so graphene will be extremely inexpensive to produce. This is in stark contrast to the high costs of processing silicon to make computer circuits.
