But what makes graphene so valuable to the electronics industry? It is a very thin, one-atom thick hexagonal grid of graphite atoms. Graphene is not only 100 times more durable than steel with the same thickness, it's also a zero-gap semiconductor, superior to the widely-used silicon. Under normal conditions, graphene is almost invisible, very light and whoppingly strong at the same time – the scientists that first isolated it back in 2004 state that a square meter of the nanomaterial tips the scales at just 1mg, but it would easily support a 4kg weight without breaking.
The possibilities before the nanomaterial are endless and Samsung suggests that one of the potential uses of graphene is in “flexible displays, wearables, and other next generation electronic devices”. Samsung's involvement with graphene might indeed speed up its commercialization and wider adoption. Hopefully, graphene will pave the way for truly flexible and even more curious electronic devices.
