Graphine sheets get easier to manufacture

grunaura writes "South Korean researchers have devised a way to create graphine sheets one centimeter square using a hydrocarbon vapor on heated nickel. Touted as being more efficient than the current process where graphine sheets are pressed. Good technical data can be found in this Nature article.

Graphine is relatively new but not to Slashdot, this round of news highlighting the technology is focusing on the bendable nature of graphine sheets as opposed to the capacitive properties previously discussed here or memory applications discussed here. Astonishingly, these films are the closest we have come to super conductors at room temperature. Perhaps someday, when manufacturing technology for graphine is perfected we will see a dramatic drop in resistance across the material which is now touted at 280Ohms."
