Changing the future Today, technology comes to us in tiny parcels. Cell phones, music players and personal computers continue to get smaller and smaller. This in turn means that the components inside get tinier as well. Now, engineers on their search for better ways to build these components, have turned to a super thin material called graphene. This, say researchers, could change the future of electronics. Graphene is the thinnest material in the world, so thin that you would need to pile about 25,000 sheets just to make a pile as thick as a piece of ordinary white paper! Apart from being nearly invisible, graphene is 200 times stronger than steel, which would then be the strongest substance known. Made of carbon, grapheme is only one atom thick!
