Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond

Exhibition, Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester, UK.


Until June 25, 2017
What's invisible to the human eye, thinner than a human hair, and 200 times tougher than steel? Graphene. Made from a single atom layer of carbon, it is super lightweight, super conductive, and super strong. This 21 -century wonder material has the potential to radically reshape the way we think, design, and manufacture in a host of areas – from racing cars to rust-free paint and from mobile phones to medical science. In this ground-breaking exhibition, one can learn about the history of graphite and graphene, journey with scientists and artists exploring the cutting edge of material technology, and immerse oneself in the wonders of a two dimensional world.
