Crumpled Graphene Better Than Normal Graphene?

By

As you may have noticed, we've got a bit of a nerd crush on a very special carbon allotrope, <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/tag/graphene">graphene</a>.

holy crap

Graphene Creates Electricity In Sunlight?

Graphene Can Make Things Waterproof Or Waterabsorbent

By

The latest nano-material to get nanotech researchers all hot and bothered is Graphene: a one-atom-thick honeycomb of carbon atoms that looks like it can do everything from making much <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/12/08/graphene-electrodes-promise-5x-energy-storage-boost-for-ultracap/">more powerful batteries</a> to replacing <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/02/defective-graphene-sheets-look-poised-to-succeed-silicon/">silicon as the semiconductor material of choice</a>.
