Sample of monolayer graphene. Circuit made using lithography, in a yellow chip holder. Written on box - IDB-23 (1). Graphene is hailed as a revolutionary material. In 2004 Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov found a reliable and cheap method for obtaining monolayer graphene flakes from graphite, using scotch tape. The graphene flakes can be used as transistors and were experimented with in hand-made circuits, then in more precisely made lithographically printed circuits. The pair were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010.
