Graphene, even if stitched together, is strongest material in the world

The researchers believe that grain boundaries in 2D materials can be a lot more sensitive to processing than in 3D materials.

Graphene, even if stitched together, is strongest material in the world

Science Recorder | James Fluere | Sunday, June 02, 2013

Researchers from Columbia University have shown that graphene, even if stitched together from many small crystalline grains, is the strongest material in the world. This experiment brings to a successful conclusion that contradiction between theoretical models, which predicted that grain boundaries can be very strong, and earlier experiments, which suggested that they were a lot weaker than the perfect lattice...
