Samsung Breakthrough Could Commercialize Graphene Sooner Than Expected

Apr 04, 2014 - 10:46 AM - by dgstorm

Samsung has been working with the Sungkyunkwan University to develop graphene technology for future flexible devices, and they recently made a breakthrough in the manufacturing process.

While it is true that methods for that already exist, what is unique about this one is that Samsung's process does not reduce the mechanical properties of the nanomaterial, which has been a problem of other manufacturing techniques.

If you haven't heard of graphene, it's a nanomaterial which is likely to completely disrupt and alter the future of the entire electronics industry. Here's a quote which explains why graphene is so revolutionary...
