Penn State University Research team has suggested a new technique for industrial-scale production of single atom layers of graphene. Scientists have not been able to mass-produce graphene for past many years. Graphene is considered as wonder material which can bring a revolution in electronics sector as the light-weight and ultra strong material is having very good conductivity and small form factor.

Penn State University professor Thomas E. Mallouk had a bet $10 with Nina Kovtyukhova for developing a new way of separating graphene sheets from graphite. The research team used intercalation to produce single atom sheet of graphene. In the technique, guest molecules or ions are inserted between th...
