Graphene: The quest for supercarbon

“Mind the gap”. Illustration from the Nature News article by Mark Peplow.

Mark Peplow has written a good primer for Nature News about the European Union’s Graphene Flagship initiative, which will fund graphene research to the tune of 1 billion euros over the next 10 years as part of the Horizon 2020 funding program. The story is also covered in a segment of the latest Nature podcast.

Many of the people quoted in the article are, understandably, very active in the nanocarbon research community, and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting them or at least hearing most them talk.
