Nobel Prize in Physics: Graphene

Published tisdag 5 oktober 2010 kl 12.03
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics this morning in Stockholm.

The Nobel Prize in Physics has gone to two Russian-born researchers Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene." The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm announced the two laureates on Tuesday morning in Stockholm.

Graphene is a very thin layer of graphite, just like what is in a pencil. The layer of carbon is just one atom thick, and according to the Nobel press release, the material has exceptional properties in the area of quantum physics. It also has practical applications with regards to electronics.

Geim and Novoselov are researchers at Britain's Manchester university who have worked together since Novoselov was a Ph.D. Student in the Netherlands.
