What is Graphene?

Click here to see more videos: https://alugha.com/mysimpleshow This video explains the basics about Graphene - the first two-dimensional atomic crystal made up of carbon atoms & arranged in a hexagonal lattice. Due to its unique combination of superior properties, graphene is a credible starting point for new disruptive technologies across a wide range of fields. Authors: Kai Blisch, Ilya Kompasov Scientific Advisor: Sir Prof. Konstantin Novoselov FRS (Nobel prize winner in physics 2010) This is what he said about the simpleshow video in 2011: "The concept and the platform of the simpleshow are indeed extremely powerful and capable of tackling the most complex tasks. It was most suitable to describe our particular project – the story of graphene with its explosive past and, hopefully, bright and dynamic future. Its impressive to see the ease with which simpleshow explained the most complex physical phenomena and most challenging future applications, some of which don’t even exist. The flexibility and power of the simpleshow is in combination of well thought animated story followed by precision tuned and balanced narration." This video was produced in cooperation with the Graphene Flagship. For more information visit: http://graphene-flagship.eu/
