The Economist reported that graphene, with its reputation as a wonder material, could potentially revolutionize information technology industries such as telecommunications.
As quoted in The Economist:
[...]Frank Koppens and his colleagues at the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona think they have found a way to do (convert graphene into products) so. As they describe in Nature Nanotechnology, they believe graphene can be used to make ultra-sensitive, low-cost photodetectors.Photodetectors are devices which convert light into electricity. They are used in digital cameras, night-vision gear, biomedical imagers, pollution sensors and telecommunications.
