Making Graphene at Home is Easy
Sheet of graphene

Noble Prize laureate Konstantin Novoselov showed how to make the thinnest material in the world, having a mobile phone, a piece of graphite and a scotch tape.
      Yesterday the physicist gave a talk at the International Forum RusNanoTech-2010, which currently takes place in Moscow. The meeting is aimed at discussing prospects of research and economic development of our country.
      Using a piece of sticky tape and a piece of graphite from a pencil, Konstantin Novoselov demonstrated how easy graphene layers can be made. He stuck the tape to graphite and transferred carbon layers to a solid substrate, using a mobile phones screen for this purpose.
      Making good graphene needs two rules to be fulfilled, Novoselov said, First is using quality graphite, and second is preparing the substrate. Drinking vodka usually helps, because alcohol vapours can perfectly degrease the surface, the scientist advised, You wont be able to see graphene you just made, but believe that it is really there.
