Until Andre Geim, a physics professor at the University of Manchester, discovered an unusual new material called graphene, he was best known for an experiment in which he used electromagnets to levitate a frog. Geim, born in 1958 in ... Geim enlisted ...
Russia stuck on the wrong page of history
Graphene was first produced more than 10 years ago at Manchester University in the UK, by two Soviet-born and Soviet/Russia-educated scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who received the Nobel prize for their graphene work in 2010.
Researchers discover Graphene's ability to allow protons to pass through it
This material was first isolated in 2004 while in 2010 groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene have been conducted by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester. Both of them won them the ...
