"Graphene: What is it and what is it for?"
Presented by Thomas Herring, PhD/Physics
The talk will cover a brief history of graphene along with a bit of quantum mechanics to help describe some of the material's more interesting properties. The range of interesting and unique properties makes graphene a candidate for a huge range of potential applications. A list of some of the more exciting ones will be covered. The talk will conclude with a summary of what might happen with graphene research in the future.
