Graphene is a new substance much in the news these days as scientists explore more and more uses for it.

A carbon layer one atom thick derived from the mineral graphite. Looking like chicken wire and considered a 2D material, graphene is naturally found as layers making up graphite. The graphene layers are separated by various exfoliation methods. Extraordinary Properties Graphene's mechanical, electrical, optical, thermal and chemical properties are outstanding, and it has been touted as a "miracle material." The 2D sheets can be layered together, fabricated into wires (nanoribbons), flakes, disk-shaped platelets or quantum dots for many applications. In addition, graphene can be added to metals, ceramics, plastics and rubber to make products stronger, lighter, more heat resistant or more flexible.

This is an amazing article I ran across today About using graphene layers in a contact lens that could possibly enable one to see into the ultraviolet and infrared range of electromagnetic waves rather than just the visible light that our eyes can see now.
