Materials Innovations: Against the (Graphene) Grain

New research studies how the grain boundaries can remain strong.

Columbia Engineering researchers recently demonstrated that graphene, even if stitched together from many small crystalline grains, is almost as strong as graphene in its perfect crystalline form. This work resolves a contradiction between theoretical simulations, which predicted that grain boundaries can be strong, and earlier experiments, which indicated that they were much weaker than the perfect lattice.
