Quote from: Yahoo
Graphene comprises just a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a
honeycomb-shaped, hexagonal lattice.

The substance is chemically very simple but extremely strong, conducts
electricity, dissipates heat and is transparent. There is a surge of interest
in it to replace semiconductors in next-generation computers, touch screens
and other electronic gadgets.

This kind of science fascinates me.

Transparent?  How will they know if...?
