US engineers have recently shown using a miniature shooting range that graphene, a multilayered material with a 10 to 100 nm thickness, may be a top-class bullet-proof material, since it seems to absorb and disperse ten times more energy than steel or polyamide.

Graphene was patented in 2014 and it is an extremely thin carbon sheet, so thin that it only has 2 dimensions, but can hold weights 100 times heavier than steel. Graphene is also an excellent conductor for electricity and heat.
