On Demand Materials of the Future

Most of the technologies we use rely on a few materials only: silicon for electronic technology, steel for construction, plus a few functional materials. We polished those technologies extremely well, but, at the same time, we became the slaves of those materials. So why not try to design materials according to our needs instead? Join Physicist and Nobel Prize winner Sir Konstantin S. Novoselov as he shares how an experiment with sticky tape led to the discovery of a new two-dimensional material – graphene – and opened a floodgate of experiments on many other 2D atomic crystals leading to the creation of multifunctional materials with predetermined properties: materials on demand.
