Researchers Apply Graphene to Smart Phones

The German-based Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF plans to use graphene, the world’s thinnest material, in smart phones.

Fraunhofer plans to use the eco-friendly graphene and its impressive properties (it is 200 times harder than steel, yet six times lighter) to create an electrode for piezoelectric resonators, which are used as bandpass filters in smartphones.
