Graphene's Discoverer Weighs In on Its Commercialization

Abstract:
Upon receiving the prestigious Copley medal from the Royal Society this week, Sir Andre Geim, the co-discoverer of graphene, said during an interview:

"I'm not interested in going into industry or property development or creating 'graphene valley' as the government would like me to. It's a bit silly for society to throw a little bit of money at something and expect it to change the world. Everything takes time."

Thank you, Professor Geim. Somebody had to say it.
