Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in hexagons resembling a honeycomb structure, serves as the foundation for the new “magic” material.

Due to its distinctive properties, interest in graphene has skyrocketed since its first definitive isolation in 2004.It is stronger than diamond, transparent, and flexible, for instance.It also easily transfers electricity and heat.
