Polish scientists hope to patent graphene mass-production technology

It's stronger than steel, lightweight, flexible and it is a better conductor than silicon. It's called graphene, and Poland is the first country in the world to be capable of producing it on an industrial scale.

It is 100 times stronger than steel. It can be stretched by 20 percent and does not break. It is transparent and made of materials available in abundance, making it an ideal material for electronics.

That looks amazing, great!

It sure does 100 times stronger than steel can be stretched and molded into an another shape, lightweight. I hope Poland makes a penny or two from this.

Hi Penn,

I think some German guy discover it in 60's. Cool stuff. Way to go Poland!

Nope, Havok is right:

At best the idea will be sold for a few million to a foreign company, which will make billions on It.

hopefully not, Poland can make a **** load of money on it if they ask Japan for a contract.

Assuming that PCs are starting to switch on graphene technology what should we start with... ? Maybe lets buy a coal mine in Silesia for start ...

This time there is a chance that the blue laser scenario will not be repeated. They are already determined to do everything on their own and not to ask the Japanese. Poland needs a success in science.

The European Commission has chosen Graphene as one of Europe’s first 10-year, 1,000 million euro FET flagships. The mission of the flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionize multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe. The Graphene flagship is a new form of joint, coordinated research initiative of unprecedented scale. It brings together an academic-industrial consortium aiming at a breakthrough for technological innovation. Involved are Nobel Laureates, top-notch research groups and the next generation industrial leaders.
