Simplified method produces largest graphene sheets of higher quality

As we've noted previously (see the May 5, 2008 LRNJ), graphene is nanotechnology’s latest “it” material because of the number of appealing electrical and mechanical properties that it shares with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) – including the (as yet remote) possibility of graphene sheets for transparent e...
