for those with reading comprehension difficulties:

  1. they are using copper as a growth substrate.
  2. the copper is initially just plain copper foil
  3. the copper foil is heated to 1030 degrees and then cooled
  4. this creates a single copper crystal with an extremely uniform surface structure
  5. this copper crystal is used to grow almost perfect graphene sheets up to a meter square (?)
  6. less than 0.1% of the product is imperfect.
  7. the production costs are the same as polycrystalline graphene when scaled up.

In short this is amazing.

The thing that I like about it is that I could probably do this small scale at home and make graphene patches about 5X5cm with the equipment I could muster with a few paychecks.

Do it, then make a video and sell it. Pure graphene is still worth more than it's weight in pure gold. I'd watch- hell, I'd subscribe, just to see someone make pure graphene.

Found you a download link for the paper if you feel motivated to try: https://sci-hub.tw/10.1016/j.scib.2017.07.005

Someday you may wake up on a beach with the sun breaking the horizon. In reality the graphene walls are projecting your wake up scene.

Good article! Had no clue what it could do outside of it being a silicon replacement.

Faggot. My graphene coated house walls will generate my electricity.

Any idea how I'd stop Google from linking me indirectly?

Block it at the router, and be amazed how much of the internet gogol has it's fingers in.

You could stop masturbating about negroids for two seconds. This kind of obsession screams that you watch interracial porn and then come here to sublimate feelings of guilt.

It's like those people that talk about those "sexist shirts" when we land a probe on an asteroid.

In an effort to replace something we already have. They just want to repalce silicon, says they.

Don't mean to sound cynical, but I'm still waiting on the cell phone battery.
