Graphene was first found by two professors Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at Manchester University in 2004. It is pure carbon in the form of a very thin, nearly transparent sheet, one atom thick layer of graphite. The strongest and most rigid substance known, which is 200x stronger than steel and has the highest electrical conductivity of any substance known. Graphene can withstand temperatures beyond any other current materials being used in the electronics industry.
