Graphene

Nanometers from the future

The (Super) Supercapacitor

In the past, researchers working with graphene faced incredibly high production costs -- somewhere in the range of $100,000,000 per cubic centimer. The price isn't particularly surprising, considering that the leading method involved hand-peeling layers of graphite with scotch tape and placing it on silicone wafers. In this video, Ric Kaner, a chemist at UCLA, explains how he set out to find a better production method...and ended up making a discovery that could change the way we interact with electronics.
