Your Pencil Lead Might Be a Source of Effectively Limitless Energy

By Mike McRae

By all measures, graphene shouldn’t exist. The fact it does comes down to a neat loophole in physics that sees an impossible 2D sheet of atoms act like a solid 3D material.

New research has delved into graphene’s rippling, discovering a physical phenomenon on an atomic scale that could be exploited as a way to produce a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.

The team of physicists led by researchers from the University of Arkansas didn’t set out to discover a radical new way to power electronic devices.

Their aim was far more humble – to simply watch how graphene shakes.
