The world's Most Immortal Material Just Went 3D

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 06:18:06 -0400

For years, graphene has been thought to be the strongest material on earth. But its thin, two-dimensional properties have always made it difficult to work with in useful 3D form - until now. A team of MIT engineers recently discovered a way to develop graphene into a structure that's stronger than steel and lighter in weight. By compressing layers of the one-atom thick graphene and subjecting it to intense heat, they've created a new 3-dimensional version of graphene with superhuman...
