Using adhesive tape and graphite as it is found in pencil lead, two physicists proved that graphene, the miracle material of the future, actually exists and won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work only a few years later. Scientists are also researching the properties of graphene at Empa. For instance, they are investigating how molecules can be used to produce well-defined graphene nanostructures that could one day serve as electronic components. Focus-theme: Graphene.
