@Sparky the Wonder Cat: thanks... i got to thinking about whether other industries have undertaken this sort of effort. The anti-piracy campaigns by the video industry, as well as efforts to foil illegal downloads come to mind. Of course, there was a lot of public outcry but these measures always create some level of inconvenience. it may just be the price we have to pay.

Q: Any advice on what they should do instead?

A: Lobby their respective country's leaders to throttle trade with countries who make no real effort to stop technology theft. Educate the Public through mass media and point directly at the countries/companies associated with technology theft. Follow the money; seize assets from known perpetrators and award those victimized. Treat technology like a controlled substance or conflict mineral, and make all Users responsible for knowing from whence it came.

@SparkytheWondercat:Thanks for weighing in.  The issue of technology theft is real... Organizations can't stop innovating just becasue it might get copied. Any advice on what they should do instead?

Another reason for it's importance is that carbon is readily available. Production of graphene is not dependent on availability of a relatively rare element.

The high conductivity of heat and electricity are responsible for the importance of Graphene. Also, its low mass (weight), another important characteristic making it more suitable for future electronic devices.

Graphene a one-atom thick layer of graphite. I think, battle for this element would be, who has this more for production of devices.

Some of the applications where Graphene  could revolutionize the product design are

 

- Solar panel design -  you could have the glass panes of your house windows fitted with transparent solar panels

- Supercapacitors - you could build high capacity supercapacitors in smaller form factors for use in EVs

 

- All kind of wearable devices could use the bendable displays using this material

 

- The EVs could be fitted with light weight solar panels on their rooftops for continous recharging of their batteries while driving

 

The list is endless!

Electrical/structural integration

It sounds like graphene will be an ideal material to use for integration of electrical/electronic functions within structural materials. It will be very interesting to see how this material will be used.

re: "Apple, Samsung, IBM, and Foxconn have been reported to have graphene-related patents. ..."

Which will not deter Chinese development of graphene-related products.

Yeah. Graphene would help in progress of Moore's law
