Discovery Of Graphene Earns Physics Nobel
The discovery of graphene—a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb pattern that boasts outstanding mechanical and electronic properties--has won physicists Andre K. Geim, 51, and Konstantin S. Novoselov, 36, both of the University of Manchester, in the U.K., the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. The researchers will share nearly $1.5 million in prize money.
The idea that a single "freestanding" sheet of graphene—meaning a one-atom-thick carbon film that rests on or is . . .
