Scientists have been able to grow graphene on silver

Scientists from the Center for Nanoscale technologies and materials, as well as the American Northwestern University for the first time in the history of science were able to demonstrate the ability to create graphene (two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms one atom thick) on silver.

Scientists say that in the process witnessed a very interesting phenomenon occurs at the edges of graphene sheets, where the electrons are scattered by the material waves. Researchers say that is not yet completely understand the cause of this phenomenon and therefore this dispersion requires further study.

Despite the fact that the study of graphene often gives more questions than answers, the progress of American Scientists puts the ability to create electronic chips based on graphene is one step closer to reality, because now they have the opportunity to study the method of this amazing material compatibility with other structures.

Recall that the graphene was obtained in 2004. Since it was written more than 4,000 scientific papers on this topic, but many questions in regard to this material, scientists still can not find answers.

The reason that scientists are very interested in studying graphene is its amazing physical and chemical properties. Graphene is one of the most durable material and thus consists only of hexagonally arranged structures assembled of carbon atoms.
