Graphene-The magic materials in the world.

2004 brought us the discovery of an entirely new material. It’s composed of two-dimensional hexagonal structures made from carbon atoms. Graphene’s unique electronic band structure as well as relativistic electronics make it the ideal system for two-dimensional electronic communication.

Graphene – A new carbon material, graphene has a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice construction. Single layer carbon atoms are tightly packed. It can also be used as a base unit to build other dimensional material. Graphene consists of hexagonal honeycombs made with sp2hybridized atoms. Each layer is just one layer thick. Graphene may appear to be a flat two-dimensional structure. But graphene actually has wavy structures. Each carbon atom within graphene has a unique single bond that connects it with three of its surrounding carbon atoms. So graphene can conduct electric power, the rest of electrons are free to move. One could say that all graphene sheets make a large, x bond.
Diagram preparation
1) Tripping tape/slight friction
Micromechanical Separation is the most widely used method. It cuts graphene sheet directly from larger crystals. Other methods of preparation include friction with pyrolytic graphite. This is when the material has been expanded using another substance or introduced defect. Flocculent crystals are formed on bulk graphite’s surface. These contain single layers of graphene.

2) Epitaxy Growth Silicon Carbide Surface
To remove silicon, heat single-crystal silicon carbide. Then decompose graphene on the surface. Following oxygen or hydrogen etching at high vacuum and electron bombardment, heat is applied to the sample to eliminate oxides. Auger electronscopy (AES), was used to verify that no oxide was left on the surface. It was heated to 1450-1450. Then, it was maintained at the same temperature for 1 minute or 20 minutes.
3) Hydrazine reduction method
Placing graphene-oxide paper into pure hydrazine is done. (A compound of hydrogen and Nitro atoms atoms), reduces graphene olefin to monolayer graphene.

4) Sodium ethoxide pyrolysis
Nano-metal is used to first reduce ethanol. Once the product has been cracked, it is washed with water and sodium salt removed. This will result in graphene sticking to the substrate. By vibration dispersion, graphene can be made in kilogram quantities using mild electromagnetic waves.

5) Carbon Nanotubes to Cut
For graphene ribbons, cutting carbon nanotubes in solution with potassium permanganate is an alternative method. The first method involves cutting multi-walled carbon crystals using potassium permanganate and succinic acid. Plasma etching, which partially embeds nanotubes within polymers is another option.
Properties of grapheme
It is thinnest and most stable material.

This is because graphene’s carbon atoms are extremely flexible. External mechanical forces bend the surfaces of carbon-atoms. This means that they do not have to conform to outside forces.
It is because of its stable lattice structure that carbon atoms are very conductive. In graphene, electrons move in orbit. They do not scatter due lattice defect or introduction of foreign particles. Although the interatomic forces are strong at roomtemperature, they do not interfere with surrounding carbon-atoms. This unique property gives graphene an advantage in the development of transparent conductive thin materials, important for solar cells and liquid crystal display. The graphene also has attractive potential applications in high sensitivity sensors, high performance energy storage and other high-performance devices.

The speed of electrons inside graphene exceeds 1/300th the speedof light. This makes graphene much more efficient than electrons in other conductors. The graphene electrons or, more correctly, the “loaders”, have an atomic structure that is very close to that of relativistic neutrinos. The study revealed graphene’s high opacity despite only being the thickness of a single layer. However, it can absorb approximately 2.3 times as much.
