Graphene could bring us high-speed internet

Graphene could be the key to superfast internet in the future.

Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice. It is a highly strong and extremely versatile substance and researchers believe that its potential applications are so numerous it could revolutionise fields such as electronics, information processing and energy storage.

Researchers combined graphene with metallic nanostructures, leading to a twenty-fold enhancement in the harvesting of light to create energy. This paves the way for future advances in high-speed internet development and other communications.
