Someday in the not too distant future, a TV as thin as a poster could hang on your wall.
There's a good chance, too, that a Platteville, Wis.-area company, founded in part by a 17-year-old boy, will have played a critical role in creating that product.
Graphene Solutions is a three-month-old company with a patent-pending technology that dissolves carbon nanotubes, graphene nanosheets and other materials so they can be purified and spread in a layer one atom thick.
That could pave the way for electronic components, like computer chips, that are dramatically smaller with much greater capacity.
"If you can very easily, reproducibly lay out a one-atom-thick layer of carbon, this is the new silicon," said Carl Gulbrandsen, managing director of the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, which helped the company get started. WARF is the patenting and licensing arm for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
