Say ‘cheese’ to turn graphite to graphene

By / August 13, 2009

Scientists worldwide are probably hitting their heads wondering, “Why didn’t I think of this!” The idea for a simple new process came in a burst of inspiration: Can a camera flash instantly heat up graphite oxide and turn it into graphene? Researchers simply hold a consumer camera flash over the graphite oxide and, a flash…
