small fragments of graphite are
left behind on the paper, but it
wasn't until four years ago that researchers
discovered that single sheets of carbon
atoms called graphene could exist among
the debris. They went on to demonstrate
that this two-dimensional material had
electronic properties quite unlike those
observed in most other systems. Since then
the number of papers on the subject has
mushroomed and shows no sign of slowing
down as researchers explore new ways
