of hard work but they know they're not alone in the game they had competition from other graphene researchers from day one so how is it they got their sample first in traditional graphite carbon structures atoms on the same plane or both closer together in more tightly bonded than they are to the atoms on layers above and below this means that the layers can slide past each other and even potentially be separated guymon of a cell of essentially seized on this possibility peeling away layers until they obtain an unbelievably thin film just one atom in thickness so called graphene models or. from the institute of microelectronics technology and high purity material this works with us on a permanent basis that's why some of the experiments were conducted at the institute and the other part in manchester. has plenty of wonderful scientists and it's a pleasure for us to work with. after years spent studying the same material and

became possible only in the last decade with the appearance of new quitman. the contains none they found trees produced by n.t. m.d.t. . this is a breakthrough in the solution of technological problems. it's exactly these kinds of centers that russia needs more of and their expansion of the country spread out science hotspots has become a major objective of the us nato corp. scientists of the bellman center are credited to test samples of new materials systems and devices to propose collaboration between russia and private companies. with professional analysis jumpstarting new nano business in russia is a mere fantasy. simply don't have the capital to establish these facilities for themselves so once the theoretical base for their concept received approval the
9:53 pm
idea passes on to fabs centers like this one for just production. thinking that is the scientific screening area before new nanotech can board its flight to international start. we have very strong expertise here. what is fake. doesn't work much of what does work is on show back at the nano forum but it's more than a two step process and other companies are scouting meetings like these for investment in production ready now i don't know how one magic material has already reached that stage graphene has the international scientific community abuzz because of the crystal structures unique properties it's so thin it's literally two dimensional it's two hundred times more durable than steel but still ninety eight

service center in korea this is the good since in this is set up making two thousand at the time only one since emitter good feeling the maximum size limitation is already history they've now made sheets with a seventy six centimeter or thirty inch diagonal consistent properties and production costs that approach viable commercial adaptation they use a process called chemical vapor deposition to form a sheet of graph. not a copper substrate then they transferred onto a flexible plastic surface when it cools if samsung is really to launch consumer products in two thousand and twelve as promised it's thanks to this lab and they have still more graffitti goodies up their sleeves. this is a. trend a race. that. is the future but the moon. i think. point.
9:56 pm
in the future it's nice to see one specialist seem to be betting on a future dominated by flexible electronics. wrap it around your wrist now it's a lot. unstructured now it's a touch screen t.v. computer monitor of course the world around us has to be fitted out for this kind of information exchange but the benefits are pretty easy to imagine in a few years people will hardly believe this all started with simple graphite any piece of scotch tape. this. is. going to. people use. it for the next ten twenty or even more. limited collection of truly new products that you can take home with you but the way big companies and top innovators are betting it won't be long until all around
9:57 pm
us join us for more next month on technology update and enjoy the ride. question is that so much of the taxpayers' money i mean it was it is never real measuring it is too big to fail expression if you're wealthy governments around the world have bailed out the rich and powerful for them the worst of the recession is probably all. going to be soo much brighter if you move out soon from finest impressions.
