Graphene Begins to Unleash the Real Promise of Nanomaterials

As previously discussed in the pages of Trends, the full potential of atomic-level fabrication as envisioned by nanotech pioneer Eric Drexler remains over the technological horizon. However, we're rapidly approaching technological critical mass with respect to the commercialization of nanomaterials and nanoparticles. Just 10 years after its discovery in 2004, graphene has already achieved a number of crucial milestones on its way to revolutionizing our economy and our lives. Where does this technology stand? What are its implications? How will it impact our li.....
