- The problem with grapheme is that known techniques require people to “grow” graphene in furnaces that heat up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena said they are the first to invent a technique that will allow fast, room-temperature production of miles-long sheets of high-quality graphene.
- The Caltech technique allows graphene growths to be layered on top of each other, whereas current techniques allow only one layer.
- Graphene is a $20 million market in 2014, but it could grow to be a $390 million market by 2024, according to independent market researcher IDTechEx.
