A Korean team has developed a carbon material that is as effective as graphene in applications, such as solar cells and semiconductor chips, using a process that requires only two steps instead of the usual eight. High-quality graphene is usually manufactured using chemical vapor deposition (CVD). In this method the graphene is manufactured on the board of a metal film that serves as a catalyst. The...
