What is Graphene? This years Nobel in Physics Goes to Graphene

Graphene is made of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb pattern, forming a single layer so thin that it’s nearly see-through. 

The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to University of Manchester physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov who performed the first experiments on graphene, a two-dimensional sheet of carbon atoms.
