Strange Atomic Ripples In Graphene Could Give Us Clean, Limitless Energy

By all measures, shouldn’t exist. The fact it does comes down to a neat loophole in physics that sees an impossible 2D sheet of atoms act like a solid 3D material.

New has delved into graphene’s rippling, discovering a physical phenomenon on an atomic scale that could be exploited as a way to produce a virtually limitless supply of clean .

The team of physicists led by researchers from the University of Arkansas didn’t set out to discover a radical new way to power electronic devices.

Their aim was far more humble – to simply watch how graphene shakes.

We’re all familiar with the gritty black carbon-based material called graphite, which is commonly combined with a ceramic material to make the so-called ‘lead’ in pencils.
